Have you ever considered volunteering your time to help others? Volunteers are an essential part of Aultman's team! They make a difference in the lives of others, while making friends and learning new skills.
Volunteers must be at least 15 years old and have successfully completed the ninth grade. Aultman requires a commitment minimum of 50 hours of volunteer service per year.
Aultman volunteers enjoy the benefits of free parking in the covered deck, free cafeteria meals after working four hours and recognition events. You can choose to volunteer in a specific area such as The Shoppes at Aultman, a family waiting area or the Aultman Blood Center bloodmobile - or you can "float" to different departments around the hospital. Volunteer opportunities are also available at Aultman North, West, Woodlawn, Carrollton and the Center for Pain Management. Check out the Volunteer Services brochure for more information.
To fill out an application form, click here. Once your application is received, Volunteer Coordinator Lori Harmon will contact you to set up an interview. All applicants then must complete required health and safety tests and receive a background screening. In addition, all volunteers must turn in a signed physician release form prior to their first day of volunteering. For more information, call 330-363-6368.
Aultman Hospital offers high school students the opportunity to volunteer over the summer months during their school break. The program runs 10 weeks and students are assigned to age-appropriate volunteer jobs throughout the hospital and affiliate medical sites.
Students must submit a volunteer application, interview with a member of the Volunteer Services Department and attend a mandatory orientation. Students are asked to commit to a minimum four hours per week to the program. Most volunteer experiences will be assigned Monday - Friday with limited weekend volunteer opportunities available to students.

The Women's Board of Aultman Hospital
In addition to our hundreds of dedicated hospital volunteers, The Women's Board of Aultman Hospital supports Aultman Health Foundation in the areas of community relations and fundraising. Since its inception in 1969, the Women's Board has raised more than $21 million to support major projects including Pediatric Services, Aultman College of Nursing and Health Sciences and, most recently, the Compassionate Care Center. The membership's current pledge is $5 million to the Aultman Cancer Center.
The major fundraising event each year is the Angel Auction, a black-tie event featuring more than 400 silent and live auction items. In addition to the Angel Auction, the Women's Board does fundraising through The Shoppes at Aultman, newborn baby photos and Tribute Funds.
Again this year, The Aultman Foundation is presenting the Light Up a Life Memory Tree event. For a $15 donation, you can honor or memorialize a loved one with a bulb on the Memory Tree. A tree-lighting ceremony will be held in early December in the Aultman Hospital Bedford Lobby. More information will be available in the fall. All proceeds will benefit hospice and grief services at the Aultman Women's Board Compassionate Care Center.
