Volunteer at Regina 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.

Volunteering is a great way to explore career fields, gain valuable learning experiences and add to your repertoire for future employment and/or college entrance requirements. It is also a known way to increase self-esteem, meet new friends and develop new skills.

Simply put, volunteering feels good. By taking an active role, you will get the chance to connect with others, share compassion and be an important part of your community. You will learn about others, while learning about yourself.

How to become a volunteer

  1. Complete volunteer application.
  2. We will get together to get acquainted either before or after you have completed the enrollment paperwork. Regina is required to perform a background check, so be prepared to provide your MN Driver’s license number (if you have one) and Social Security number.
  3. Prospective volunteers contact Regina's Infection Control Practitioner to verify immunity to measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, and tuberculosis. If your immunization record is unavailable, our Infection Control Practitioner may arrange for a free test at Regina’s laboratory to verify your immunity (parent or guardian's permission signature required for youth).
  4. We’ll schedule a time for you to attend a general orientation session to learn what you need to know about Regina before you get started. Training in your area of service will also be provided.
