Volunteer at KHSC

As a Kingston Health Sciences Centre volunteer, you have the opportunity to support patients and family members throughout their health care journey.  Whether you are calling to remind them of an appointment or walking them to meet their ride after a procedure, you can enhance their experience! 

Volunteers are pivotal to providing support, information, encouragement, directions, comfort items and diversion from anxiety, stress, or boredom.   

Volunteers are highly valued members of the health care team at Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston General Hospital, the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario, Detoxification Centre, and the Eating Disorders Day Treatment Program.  They play a vital role in helping to improve the patient experience and complement the high standard of patient care provided by our staff and physicians. 

Our volunteers tell us why KHSC is the place to volunteer

“Knowing that each shift I have the opportunity to make a positive difference in someone’s life” 

“Being around like-minded people who want to contribute to their community well-being” 

“I know as volunteers we add quality to the publics’ experience at KHSC” 

“It’s my favourite activity of every week.  I always look forward to volunteering” 

“I thoroughly enjoy volunteering as a Hand Hygiene Auditor and feel that this experience has significantly contributed to my passion for healthcare.”

“People are looking for information and reassurance, and I try my best to help them get both, which seems to bring some relief at a stressful time.”
