Help MetroHealth Spread Hope: New Hospital Seeks Volunteers to Start in October

With the opening of The MetroHealth Glick Center, the state-of-the-art 10-story hospital, there has never been a more exciting time to volunteer at MetroHealth.

Dozens of volunteers are needed to provide a warm welcome to patients and visitors and to help them find their way to appointments, the family resource center, meditation room and other areas that are part of a history-making “hospital in a park,” soon to be surrounded by 25 acres of public green space.

To continue to guarantee personal care, the health system is looking for compassion-filled volunteers devoted to helping people during some of the most trying times in their lives.

Anyone 16 or older is invited to volunteer in the new building that features local artwork, floor-to-ceiling windows, indoor performance space and a food hall that offers international and kosher options.

Volunteers should be able to stand or walk for most (or all) of a three-hour shift and are asked to commit to serving once a week. All are welcome, especially those fluent in Spanish, Arabic or other languages.

In exchange for their time, volunteers receive free parking and all the benefits that come with staying active and helping others.

“Providing support to those who are ill or injured, who are worried or in pain, or who have family members in the hospital is incredibly uplifting,” said Becky Moldaver, MetroHealth’s Director of Volunteer Services. “ ‘Thank you for letting me do this work,’ is a comment we hear nonstop from our volunteers.

“On top of all that, volunteers will get in 10,000 steps a day in a beautiful environment dedicated to spreading hope.”

Shifts are available weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Training begins in September.
