Volunteering at St. Francis is a wonderful way to give back to a Hospital that may have helped you or a loved one, and to apply your special talents while making a positive impact on the community. Volunteer groups include:


Hospital Volunteers

Adults and teens (at least 15 years-old by January 1) give of their time and their talents to further the mission of St. Francis Hospital and help its patients and staff. They assist in transporting patients, delivering flowers, distributing menus and newspapers, and in many other important support functions.

For more information on volunteering at St. Francis Hospital, please call the Director of Volunteer Services at (516) 562-6106.




The BraveHearts of St. Francis are a group of the Hospital's former open-heart surgery patients who offer support and assistance to current heart patients including patients who undergo the minimally invasive TAVR procedure. BraveHearts visit with patients to deliver membership certificates and lend an experienced view of recovery. They also staff a telephone support line for recently discharged patients. The group publishes a monthly newsletter, coordinates several excursions and day trips throughout the year, and support one another in their post-operative experiences.

See our monthly newsletter. For more information on the BraveHearts, please call (516) 562-6785.
