Each year more than 300 volunteers extend hospitality and care to patients, their families and visitors. Volunteers annually donate approximately 24,000 hours in at least 50 different positions throughout Madonna.
Professionals, seniors, families and groups find that Volunteer Resources offers unique programs and service opportunities at the hospital and long term care areas. Volunteers of all ages find fulfillment working with staff as they interact with patients in therapies and activities. Individuals and families spend time visiting patients and residents, while other volunteers join the Angel Dog Program and bring four-pawed visitors to Madonna. Volunteers can be found at the front desk, delivering mail, assisting individuals to therapies and working alongside staff in the many support areas throughout Madonna.
Madonna also offers opportunities for individuals considering careers in rehabiltiation to visit our campuses and observe our clinicians at work.
