Join our team of volunteers

Whether it's bringing some cheer to a lonely patient, delivering flowers from loved ones or making a sick child less anxious, volunteers at CoxHealth have a great and lasting impact on our patients.

When Glenda Patterson of Springfield visited Cox South she always noticed the volunteers.

“They are always so helpful. This prompted me to find out about volunteering at the hospital,” says Glenda.

Soon she was volunteering at the Cox South Gift Shop (below) one day a week.

“I assist customers who need help finding a specific item. I also help with the flower and candy bouquets by making sure they get to the correct patient and location,” says Glenda.

Glenda says she enjoys meeting people and helping others as a volunteer, and she receives a discount off purchases in the CoxHealth gift shops.

Positions are currently open in the gift shops and at the information desks, and on-the-job training is provided.
