A Tradition of Caring
AdventHealth Shawnee Mission represents a tradition of caring. Our volunteers are noted for their warmth, professional courtesy and efficiency, and they find their volunteering experiences to be challenging and personally fulfilling. We invite you to add to this tradition by contributing your time as a AdventHealth Shawnee Mission volunteer.
What is a Volunteer?
A volunteer is one who, under staff supervision and direction, serves the hospital without salary. A volunteer gives complimentary service to patients, offers assistance where needed and responds to requests for help.
Most volunteers work one shift per week. Volunteers are asked to commit to giving a minimum of 60 hours of service to the program.
Volunteers serve not only individual patients and employees, but also the institution as a whole. While it is impossible to measure the personal benefits that a volunteer receives when helping members of his/her community, perhaps it is just as impossible to estimate the value of volunteer service to the medical center in terms of hours, energy and dollars saved.
To express appreciation for a volunteer’s time and concern, AdventHealth Shawnee Mission offers the following benefits:
- A discount in the Gift Shop
- Discounts at area businesses
- Free initial and annual TB tests
- Free flu shots
- Invitation to all employee social events
- Discounted tickets for special events and theme parks
