At Shriners Children's Ohio, volunteers are an invaluable part of our philosophy of care. Whether it’s working behind the scenes or interacting with patients, families and staff, every volunteer position is important and provides a genuine service to our hospital and patients.

Because Shriners Children's Ohio is a pediatric specialty hospital, the following are requirements for becoming a volunteer:

  • Must submit to a complete background check, including a reference check

    • Volunteers for special events that benefit the Cincinnati Shriners Hospital who do not hold a regular, ongoing volunteer status, will not be required to undergo drug testing or background checks.
