Volunteer at Beacon Health System

Want to help create exceptional experiences for patients and guests? Join our volunteer team!

Volunteer greets patient during visit.

Maybe you were a Beacon patient and want to give back. Or you’re excited to meet new people and learn new skills. Or you just want to positively impact your own community. Whatever inspires you, our volunteers play a vital role in our patients’ healing. We have volunteer opportunities available in a variety of areas at Memorial Hospital of South Bend, Elkhart General Hospital and Community Hospital of Bremen.

Our patients, families and visitors enjoy abundant benefits when you volunteer … and you will, too! You’ll have opportunities to greet, aid or guide, direct, bake for, serve, rock, read to and love our patients. You’ll also build relationships with other service-minded individuals and experience the diversity of health care. With just a few hours a week, you can have an amazing impact on someone’s life and on your community.

We can’t wait to get to know you and the talents you can bring as you join us in our commitment to our patients.

Three Rivers Health

The Three Rivers Health Auxiliary is a critical part of the hospital’s success. They provide invaluable services to the organization through their activities. Below are some of the activities sponsored by the Auxiliary.

  • Operation of the Snack Bar, open Monday-Friday 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. Gift Shop, open 10:00am – 2:00 pm. Located near the main entrance of the hospital, they offer unique gifts and tasty treats.
  • Hospitality Services where staff greet patients and visitors and assist with general information and directions.
  • The annual Lights of Love campaign gives everyone a chance to donate to a great cause and honor their loved ones with a light on the trees at the hospital entrance. Click here to see the 2011 Lights of Love Celebration information.
  • Throughout the year, the Auxiliary hold special event fund raisers. The Christmas Bazaar, held every November, has become a community favorite. Smaller events such as raffles and specialty sales of jewelry, books and cookies also make many opportunities for volunteers to participate.

Volunteering can give you the opportunity to give back and become more involved in your community, meet others with the desire to share of themselves, and find personal fulfillment through helping others.

All of the proceeds from the Auxiliary activities are used for the purchase of equipment for the hospital.
