Volunteers at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, serve patients and visitors with a personal touch.
Your work as a Mayo Clinic volunteer helps patients feel more comfortable, assists Mayo staff members in carrying out their patient care mission, and becomes a source of pride and enjoyment.
Like everyone at Mayo Clinic, we have a primary concern for patients' well-being, comfort and security.
Volunteers contribute to Mayo's mission in numerous ways. Volunteers reassure anxious visitors, support a caring but busy professional staff, and help ensure the individual attention that Mayo patients have come to expect.
Our volunteers have a variety of occupations and backgrounds and come from around the world. Approximately 60 percent are women and 40 percent are men. Some interesting facts about Mayo volunteers:
- Our volunteers range in age from 15 to 96 years.
