Our volunteers donate their time and talents to provide various hospitality services for our patients and staff. Adult volunteers are needed to visit patients, greet visitors at the front desk, pass out magazines in the waiting areas and offer clerical support. Most volunteers work a minimum of 4 hours a day, one day per week. Prerequisites include a physical, a TB screening and drug screen provided by the hospital and much more. The Provident Women’s Auxiliary sponsors fund raisers to pay for patient care needs. To inquire about these services or how to become a volunteer, please call the Public Affairs Department, Monday through Friday at extension 312-572-2742. Minimum requirements for volunteers include high school diploma, a physical, background check, and drug screen paid for by Cook County.
Teens must be at least 14 years of age and in high school. For more information, contact Dee Clayton at 312-572-2742
Community Advisory Board
The Community Advisory Board (CAB) at Provident Hospital of Cook County offers an opportunity for the hospital to develop business relationships for the purpose of “community consultation”. The board provides input regarding community healthcare needs and members generate ideas for process improvement. The participants are helpful in heightening awareness of the services and programs offered. The board actively promotes and participates in all of the hospital’s internal events.
The Provident Hospital Community Advisory Board consists of 13 members with diverse skills and contacts. A portion of the membership rotates but consists of patients, church leaders, bank presidents, social and business organization leaders, school principals, government officials and other healthcare representatives.
