Grant Medical Center Volunteer Opportunities in Columbus
Make a positive difference in your life and the lives of others. You can make a difference by volunteering at Grant!
Volunteers serve the hospital in so many ways - in virtually every department - by providing support to nursing professionals and associates so they can focus their efforts on patient care. Placement depends upon your interests, skills, availability and open opportunities at the time you apply.
OhioHealth Grant Medical Center volunteers have the opportunity to help others, gain new skills or "dust off" old ones. They also receive great benefits that include free parking, free meals, free vaccinations and more.
Currently, Grant is accepting applications from those 18 years of age and older. Please check back in the near future for additional opportunities as we develop a "Junior Volunteer Program."
