In 2000, the Catholic Medical Centers of Brooklyn and Queens, St. Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center of New York, and Sisters of Charity Healthcare in Staten Island merged to form the St. Vincent Catholic Medical Centers (SVCMC). The nine-hospital organization serves more than 500,000 people each year. Over 3,000 physicians staff its care and research facilities and conduct clinical drug trials for cardiovascular- and cancer-related illnesses, among others.
Volunteer positions are available at all of SVCMC’s facilities under “patient contact” or “no patient contact.” A higher percentage of volunteers participate in the patient contact category and work alongside nursing staff to tend to the needs of the infirm. Volunteers who choose no patient contact can expect office and administrative work. SVCMC provides unglamorous but hands-on experience in departments with immediate need.
Open to high school students, college freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors, as well as anyone 16 years of age or older.
