Note: Reading Hospital is not currently accepting volunteer applications.

For patients, family members, and friends walking through our doors, it is not an average day. Volunteers help make these days better. If you are 15 years or older, you may apply.

Benefits of Volunteering

Whether you are walking a patient to their appointment, a visitor to their loved one, knitting a shawl, or serving in a patient care unit, volunteering can enrich your life by:

  • Positively impacting your physical and mental health
  • Positively impacting the quality and longevity of your life for as little as two hours a week
  • Creating a deeper connection to your community

Types of Volunteering

In-service volunteers serve by helping patients, visitors, and staff at Reading Hospital, Reading Hospital Rehabilitation at Wyomissing, or one of our satellite locations. They help with special projects and events.

Off-campus volunteers serve by sewing, knitting, or crocheting at home. Sometimes, they participate in special craft projects.
