Volunteer with Us

Detroit Medical Center cherishes its corps of volunteers across the system. Giving generously of their time, volunteers provide the extra care and support to our patients, families, and staff.  Volunteers work in a variety of departments and programs at our hospitals.

Adult Volunteers

Adult volunteers are selected based on hospital need and volunteer availability. Volunteers must apply online, with a long term commitment preferred. There may be additional training at your facility, including an orientation. Volunteers are screened to find a good match for their skills and interests.

Hutzel Women's Hospital Volunteers

Hutzel Women's Hospital volunteers are an important part of the neonatal team. Many of our families are unable to stay with their babies for extended periods of time due to family and work obligations. Our Hutzel Women's Hospital volunteers help support the family when it is not possible for the to be present. 

Student Volunteers

Student volunteers must be at least 16 years old, should have a desire to pursue a career in the medical field, and will need parental consent. Contact the site you wish to serve at for more information on volunteering as a student.

Outside Volunteers & Service Projects

Volunteer Services has many service projects available for outside volunteers: knitted baby hats, nursery blankets, pediatric blankets, and more. Contact the site you wish to donate to for more information on service projects.
