Note: Reading Hospital is currently accepting volunteer applications.

For patients, family members, and friends walking through our doors, it is not an average day. Volunteers help make these days better. If you are 16 years or older, you may apply.

Benefits of Volunteering

Whether you are walking a patient to their appointment, a visitor to their loved one, knitting a shawl, or serving in a patient care unit, as little as two hours per week spent volunteering can enrich your life by:

  • Positively impacting your physical and mental health
  • Positively impacting the quality and longevity of your life
  • Connecting with your community on a deeper level

Types of Volunteering

In-service volunteers serve by helping patients, visitors, and staff at Reading Hospital, and Reading Hospital Rehabilitation at Wyomissing. They help with special projects and events.

Off-campus volunteers serve by sewing at home, and sometimes, they participate in special craft projects.
