Volunteer Services

Kind words and personalized assistance go a long way in making our guests comfortable. Meriter volunteers complement our dedicated healthcare team members by enhancing the quality of care provided to our patients.

The caring individuals who volunteer at UnityPoint Health – Meriter reflect the community we serve through a range of backgrounds, identities and experiences.

The Difference we Make Together 

Your gift to Volunteer Services provides ongoing support of activities benefiting our patients and families: everything from the purchase of yarn for homemade baby hats and fabric for infant crib sheets to kicking off new programs such as our Bedside DJ program, which allows volunteers to provide music to our patients at their bedside.

You can also direct your gift to our Healthcare Scholarships program, which supports higher education for local high school students planning a career in the healthcare field.
