To help ensure the safety of our patients, their families, our employees, and our volunteers, and in adherence to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, we have made the decision to suspend all volunteer activity at Cincinnati Children’s indefinitely. We will provide updates when we are able to resume regular programming.

Volunteers at Cincinnati Children’s are an integral part of everything we do. Their energy, commitment and dedication help Cincinnati Children’s change the outcome for patients. 

Cincinnati Children’s volunteers fill a wide variety of roles throughout the hospital and our neighborhood locations, as well as at events benefiting the medical center. Each role is crucial in advancing our vision to be the leader in improving child health. Whether volunteers are reading a book to a child, sewing a quilt for a new patient, helping to beautify hospital grounds or handing out water at a fundraising walk, they are supporting our patients and families.
