Volunteer Program

Mercy volunteers are valued members of our caregiving team. Each volunteer adds a personal touch to the health care provided at Mercy, making an important difference to the patients and families we serve.


We work with our volunteers to match their skills, interests and schedules to one of our volunteer opportunities. We are flexible about time commitments--even one hour a month is a big help.


Volunteer opportunities include:

Visiting patients


Gift Shop

Special events

Clerical support

Lights of Love

Mercy Hospital Auxiliary

The Mercy Auxiliary supports the efforts and missions of both Mercy Hospital and Augustana Mercy Health Care Center. Funds raised through activities like the Lights of Love Tree lighting and the Gift Shop are used to help purchase minor medical equipment and provide annual scholarships for local high school students. Auxiliary members also volunteer their time helping patients and residents.

Auxiliary meetings are held five times a year. Membership is open to people wanting to give time and support. Call 218.485.5891 for more information.
