Each year volunteers contribute more than 22,000 hours to support the staff, patients and visitors. Volunteers can be placed with direct patient contact or provide clerical support in various departments. We listen carefully to prospective volunteers' interests and goals and make every effort to place them in positions that will be interesting and satisfying while meeting the needs of the hospital. Our volunteers say they get back more than they give. The truth is that patients and staff benefit to a much greater extent than volunteers can imagine.

The Volunteer Department keeps pace with innovative programs that are developed at Hospital for Special Care, regularly creating new and interesting volunteer opportunities. Hospital for Special Care is proud of its more than 300 volunteers who support the hospital's mission to enhance the quality of life of our patients.

In addition, for those who live in the Hartford area, there are the same volunteer opportunities at Hospital for Special Care Hartford Satellite located at 500 Blue Hills Avenue, Hartford, CT 06112. There is a great staff to work with and ample parking.
