Volunteer service

Over 250 voluntary helpers are involved at the University Hospital Zurich and perform valuable work for the benefit of patients. Someone to talk to, a helping hand, a smile or just the presence of another person is a great gift for many people when they are ill. Your time and attention are greatly appreciated!

What you can do for our patients

  • Welcome and assist at time of hospital admission
  • Accompany patients to examinations and clinics
  • Give support during the waiting periods before and after the examinations
  • Provide companionship during treatment-free times
  • Babysit during examinations and visits

It's important to us that our volunteers feel comfortable – it's work without pay, but the personal gains are incomparable.
