Volunteer at Abbott Northwestern Hospital

To protect the health and safety of our patients and staff, we have suspended most in-person volunteer programs and services. As of July 2020, we began a phased approach to resuming in-person volunteering at several locations/programs in a limited capacity with existing volunteers. Any new volunteer opportunities will be on a limited basis and can be found in more detail on the individual volunteer program pages.

If you want to make an impact on your community or spend some time giving back to those who need help, consider volunteering at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.

By volunteering at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, you will make a difference in people’s lives. Volunteers from age 15 will have the opportunity to serve patients, guests and employees.
