Craig Hospital has approximately 165 volunteers who regularly give of their time and talents in a variety of settings around the hospital. Most volunteers have been at Craig for many years, some for decades. We are indebted to these unique and exceptional people who unselfishly help our patients, families, and staff. Their contribution and commitment is yet another reason that Craig Hospital is highly respected and has world-wide recognition.
Our volunteer positions vary from hands-on patient contact such as helping in the therapy departments, to assisting in non-clinical areas of the hospital. Volunteer times vary depending on the needs of each department. Rehab engineering, adaptive technology lab, gift shop, Therapeutic Recreation, Physical Therapy and Research are just some of the many areas in the hospital that use volunteers.
Based on the needs in the hospital, prospective volunteers are matched to assignments that align with their interests and availability. All volunteers must attend a mandatory orientation. Additional training is provided by the department in which they will work.
If you are at least 16 years old and interested in becoming a part of the Craig family by becoming a volunteer, please email Jill Stelley Virden at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 303-789-8417. We will discuss what we can do to create a match for you and Craig Hospital.
