Volunteer Services at UW Medicine

​​​Volunteers are valued members of the UW Medicine healthcare team. Each year hundreds of men and women from all walks of life contribute thousands of hours of service to improve the lives of patients, families and staff at Harborview Medical Center and UW Medical Center.

UW Medicine volunteers are supportive, resourceful and caring. Volunteers serve in many ways throughout our medical centers – in clinical and inpatient areas, administrative departments and in guest relations or customer service.

Volunteers support patients and visitors by escorting patients to clinic appointments and other locations in the medical center; facilitating family and visitor contact with staff; socializing with patients; and assisting medical center staff as needed.

Volunteers also work behind the scenes in administrative departments by providing clerical support to medical offices, restocking and delivering supplies, running errands, and distributing books and magazines to activities to patient rooms and waiting areas.

Those who serve are the faces of hospitality in our patient and family resource centers, reception areas and gift shops.
