The Volunteer Service Department supports the general services of the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. Our volunteers act as vital members of the care team and strive to deliver compassionate care across the healthcare continuum by improving the quality of life for persons recovering from, or learning to live fully with illness, injury and disability. By giving of their time, our volunteers support the mission, vision and values of Spaulding and become involved in our hospital community. The experience of our patients, their families and our staff are made more meaningful through the services provided by our dedicated and enthusiastic core of volunteers. Volunteers participate in activities that range from interacting with patients and their families to providing administrative support for our staff.
Our goal is to assist interested parties in finding an enjoyable volunteer experience at Spaulding.
