The Gift That Gives Back 

Volunteers at Missouri Baptist Medical Center find that their roles can be fun and satisfying as they meet people and become involved in community service. Each volunteer determines his or her level of involvement. There are opportunities to work at events, serve in leadership positions, work at fund-raisers and participate in special projects.

What Volunteers Do

We love our volunteers

Volunteers are valuable to the Hospital community, assisting patients, families and employees. More than 400 student and adult volunteers offer their time, energy and special talents to many areas, including the gift shop, information desks and clinical areas.

Adult men and women and college and high school students are all welcome as volunteers. High schools students (15-18 years of age) may serve as student volunteers. Young adults (18 and older) serve as college career volunteers. Any time you can give is appreciated and there is flexibility in the days, hours and frequency that you can contribute.


Most volunteers agree that the greatest gift comes from the satisfaction of serving others. Volunteers are eligible for some special benefits including: 

  • Discounts at the gift shop and cafeteria 
  • Invitations to special social events such as appreciation brunches, family picnics and volunteer health fairs

Some volunteer expenses may be tax-deductible; check with your accountant or the Internal Revenue Service for specifics.
