Be a part of something special! The Hospital Volunteers of Venice (HVV), with nearly 600 dedicated members, support the advancement of the entire health care system. We accomplish this goal, by assisting the professional staffs, in providing comfort and care to patients and their families. A wide variety of opportunities are available throughout the health care system for volunteers ages 14 years and up. The HVV’s primary purpose is to support the Venice Regional Bayfront Health’s vision to be the healthcare provider of choice. Our Volunteers provide compassionate care in over 50 departments/services throughout the Venice Regional Medical Center and HealthPark.
The HVV is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, a separate entity from our partner, Venice Regional Bayfront Health and its affiliate, the HealthPark. Our mission is to support the hospital in its objective of providing compassionate and dedicated care to all those who are in distress of mind or body. We serve patients, their families and the community through the hospital and HealthPark. We greet patients and families at curbside as they arrive. We provide them with free valet parking –the best deal in Sarasota County– during their stay. We assist them in the registration process. We escort them to where they have to be within the hospital or HealthPark. And we serve as their advocates, to assure that they are treated with expertise, care and respect. The hospital provides space for us to run income generating enterprises such as Lifeline, the Elephant’s Trunk Thrift Store and the Korner Gift Shoppe. We use the income from those activities for the benefit of (1)students seeking scholarships funds for pursuing careers in healthcare, (2)patients and visitors who get all that free valet parking, and (3)other nonprofit organizations such as Tidewell Hospice, South County Food Pantry and the Boys and Girls Clubs.
