Volunteer Opportunities

For many, volunteering means lending a hand, sharing time and expertise, talking with a patient or simply being a friend.

Over 200 volunteers at Alexandra Hospital, Ingersoll share a stong sense of commitment and admiration.  They all have the desire to give back to their  community and help provide quality patient care.  They contribute their unique talents, skills and provide support and attention to our patients and visitors.

Volunteer Services is committed to working closely with the staff and volunteers to develop rewarding assignments that will enhance the patient and visitor experience at Alexandra Hospital, Ingersoll.

As a volunteer, you are a representative of Alexandra Hospital, we ask that you adhere to the same high professional standards expected from our team.  This includes:
