At Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse, volunteers are an integral part of our health care team. Volunteers interact with patients and families, helping with wayfinding and transport. Our volunteers provide comfort to cancer and hospice patients, and hospitality to anyone who comes through the front doors of our hospital or clinic needing information or assistance.
We welcome a wide age range of volunteers, from students who are passionate about helping others to seniors who have a wealth of experience to share. Each makes unique, invaluable contributions to the experiences of our patients and staff through their service.
We welcome energetic, compassionate people who want to make a difference in others' lives by sharing their time and talent.
As part of the application process, all volunteer candidates will be asked to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
We'll review your application, and you may be invited to meet with us for an interview. If it appears your skills and interests are a good match with available volunteer roles, we'll prepare you to become a member of the team and start you volunteering.
The volunteer onboarding process includes:
Health screening conducted in our Occupational Health Department (no cost to candidate)
Successful verification of criminal background checks
Transporter screening (if volunteer will be transporting patients)
Completion of online orientation and related documents
