Thank you for your interest in volunteering at UPMC Cole!

If you enjoy helping people and making new friends, then volunteering is perfect for you. Volunteers assist our staff by running errands, delivering flowers and mail, escorting visitors and transporting patients. Volunteers give their time as greeters, in the surgical waiting lounge, gift shop, the long-term care facility, the Patterson Cancer Care Center and Potter County Hospice. Volunteers are a special group of individuals who care for our patients, visitors, staff and one another.

Volunteers are recognized as a vital link between UPMC Cole and the communities we serve, as you assist our paid staff in delivering high-quality, caring service. As a volunteer you will:

  • Provide a lending hand to those in need.
  • Learn new skills.
  • Make new friends.
  • Provide many extra services that supplement the basic, essential functions of the professional staff.
  • Add to the quality of health care by helping the patients, their families, the staff, visitors and the entire hospital.
