We are currently recruiting for the Surgical Waiting Area. NYM surgical liaison volunteers offer compassion, care and useful information to caregivers and are a calm presence in the surgical waiting area. They navigate hospital logistics and resolve non-medical concerns. For more information, please visit our Surgical Waiting Room Liaison page.

Each year over 1,000 individuals from throughout New York City devote time to adding a dimension of care for, and service to, the patients at NYM. Volunteering at any of our healthcare facilities provides opportunities improve and enrich the lives of others. At the same time service can advance a volunteer's career goals, support college and university education and open new doors to develop and pursue interests, skills and talents. We treasure our volunteers and encourage them to stay with us as long as they are available. Come join our team!
For our year-round programs NYM asks that volunteers commit to a minimum of 150 hours and six months of service, unless otherwise specified.
This time commitment allows the volunteer to make a real impact on his or her project area and provides the greatest return of personal satisfaction.
When volunteers reach this milestone they become eligible for documentation of hours completed.
Due to the number of applications we receive, we are unable to respond to everyone. We will respond to applicants who we determine to be good matches for programs which have openings.
