Volunteer at Touro

Give back to Touro through volunteer opportunitiesTouro volunteers

Touro Infirmary is located in the heart of New Orleans and volunteers are at the heart of the hospital’s compassionate healthcare services. Volunteers assist Touro in serving patients, families, visitors, and other guests. The hospital staff deeply appreciates our volunteers and strives to make their experience productive, rewarding, and meaningful.

Opportunities exist in almost every department, where volunteers can make use of existing skills or cultivate new ones. Volunteers currently contribute their time in some 35 different areas. In administration or on a medical unit, everyone at Touro benefits from volunteer assistance.

Some of the many perks that our volunteers receive include:

  • Free meals at Café Touro
  • Validated parking in the Touro garages
  • Free annual tuberculosis test and flu vaccinations, when available
  • On-going training and skills development
  • Invitations to Touro functions and recognition luncheons
  • Award certificates and pins

Although volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, Touro provides special student programs. In the summer, Junior Volunteers, ages 14 to 18, serve in a variety of departments. Volunteer Services also places medically minded college students in various assignments. These young adults have opportunities for experiential learning that prepares them for further medical education and future careers as doctors, nurses, therapists, and technicians.
