If you are motivated to donate your time and talents, we invite you to join the dedicated volunteers at HCA Florida Northside Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL.

Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

If our mission resonates with you, a rewarding volunteer experience awaits! At HCA Florida Northside Hospital, we are providing cutting-edge heart procedures, reducing the permanent effects of stroke and giving folks with orthopedic and spine problems new hope.

Our volunteer opportunities range from roles with direct patient interaction in nearly every area of the hospital, including our emergency room, to non-patient care areas, including the front desk, family waiting area and in support of our professionals in ancillary departments.

Benefits of volunteering

Research proves volunteers live longer and are healthier and  happier than people who do not volunteer. Student volunteers also earn better grades than their peers who don't volunteer. Additionally, at Northside, our volunteers receive a wealth of free health and wellness education, a free meal for each shift served and a free flu shot each year. 

Expectations of volunteers

HCA Florida Northside Hospital's volunteer program requires a weekly minimum commitment of four hours per week for six consecutive months (three for teens). We count on our volunteers being here as scheduled to provide our patients and guests with the best service possible.  We also expect our volunteers to be tested annually for tuberculosis (TB) and immunized for influenza.
