Make a Difference!
Give back to your community by becoming a volunteer with OSF HealthCare. Adult and teen volunteers are needed in a multitude of service areas at OSF HealthCare Saint Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa and OSF HealthCare Center for Health – Streator.
Volunteering at the hospital is a great way to stay active, serve your community, and make new friends. In addition, as a volunteer you will receive a free flu shot and have the opportunity to qualify for a complimentary membership at OSF LifeFit in Ottawa or the Streator Family YMCA.
Teens currently in eighth grade through senior year in high school who are interested in volunteering in a hospital setting are invited to participate in our TAGS program. Volunteers will be required to complete an application and attend an orientation session. TAGS serve in a variety of settings, including working on patient floors delivering water, food, flowers and teddy bears to patients.
Volunteers must commit to at least 30 hours a year. Hours for volunteering are between 6:30 and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 2:30 to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The hospital is very flexible and good at working around students’ busy schedules.
