Hospice-trained volunteers serve as part of a team giving compassionate care to those with a terminal illness and their families. They provide a support system for caregivers by visiting patients or helping them and family members with errands. Hospice volunteers also provide direct and indirect patient care including respite and social visits, clerical duties and help with special projects.
To learn more about hospice volunteering, call our Volunteer Coordinator, 724-689-1800.

Our team of volunteers at Excela Health includes a few furry friends as well. Pet therapy animals are used to provide comfort and affection to patients, staff and visitors at various locations throughout the system. Their owners, who accompany their animals on visits, must meet the same requirements as any Excela volunteer.
- Must be at least one-year-old
- May be of any breed or mixed breed
- Must be tested and registered through one of the recognized national or regional therapy animal organizations
- Must be up-to-date on certain health requirements
- Must not be fed a raw diet
