Volunteering at Jupiter Medical Center
At Jupiter Medical Center, our Auxiliary (volunteers) provide invaluable
support to patients, visitors and team members. Over 700 volunteers comprise
our Auxiliary and come in all shapes, sizes and ages. They share a common
desire to touch people's lives and make a difference by contributing
to the community in which they live and prosper.
Ways to Help
Volunteers serve in many areas of the hospital, performing a variety of
tasks, such as assisting visitors, directing, escorting and transporting
patients, assisting family members in waiting rooms, performing administrative
functions, visiting with patients, offering reading materials, or just
making sure the patient is as comfortable as possible.
Volunteers assist Jupiter Medical Center team members in departments such as:
- Gastrointestinal Services
- Emergency Room
- Foshay Cancer Center
- Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center
Additionally, our volunteers contribute to various hospital programs, including
Pastoral Care, Patient Advocacy, and Pet Therapy.
How Do I Get Involved?
If you are considering becoming a hospital volunteer but are apprehensive
because you don’t know what will be expected of you, we encourage
you to contact us to learn more. At Jupiter Medical Center, the first
step in becoming a volunteer is a friendly interview. Call the Auxiliary
at 561-263-4461, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. You can
learn about opportunities that suit your skills and interests, and we
can learn about you! For your convenience, you may download and bring
Volunteer Application and
Background Consent Form with you to your interview.
Every volunteer goes through orientation and receives training before beginning
their new role. All volunteers are required to adhere to the Auxiliary
dress code which consists of a teal polo shirt or teal long sleeve jacket
for the women, and a teal polo shirt for the men. Shirts or jackets may
be purchased in the Gift Shop.
Note: In keeping with hospital safety standards, a routine background check
and tuberculosis screening is required.
