Volunteer Services at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai

Volunteer reading to pediatric patientsLasers, microscopes and state-of-the-art technology enable our Medical Staff to restore vision, hearing and speech, but the personal involvement of so many people enables the hospital to achieve its modern miracles with a human touch.

Some very important people are our volunteers.  They may range in age from high school students to retired professionals, from all walks of life and many different cultures, but all are a special kind of person who freely gives of his or her time and energy.

Through the years, our volunteers work diligently to add those extra measures to comfort the sick, or people who need to be guided, or families who need assistance.  In their highly visible positions, volunteers make things happen…whether it is directing visitors and patients at the Information Desk, helping stock vital areas such as the Operating Rooms, or reading to a patient recovering from eye surgery.
