Volunteer opportunities

We have a variety of placement opportunities throughout the hospital, including staffing the information desk, providing clerical support in various departments, acting as a patient ambassador (patient representative) and lending a hand in the patient care units.

Volunteer benefits

There are many benefits to being a volunteer. First and foremost is the overwhelming feeling of giving back to your community. In addition, you will receive a complimentary meal while on duty, holiday recognition gifts, a special recognition luncheon during National Volunteer Week and festive parties and educational seminars.

The Cuddler Program

The Cuddler Program at The New Life Center at HCA Florida Palms West Hospital is designed to provide comfort and support to babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) when they need it the most.

Research shows that when a baby is cuddled, it helps to calm them, manage their stress and improve brain development. Our cuddlers are specially trained to hold, give hugs and more when families cannot be there.
