Volunteer Opportunities

It’s your community, and you can be a part of it by giving your time as a volunteer at Community facilities or by working with our patient experience team to partner in your care.

Partners in Care

Community Health Network is dedicated to working with and considers our patients and their loved ones to be partners at the center of the health care team. At the core of this partnership are your insights and experiences that have formed your unique healthcare narrative. By sharing your experiences, you can ensure your voice is at the foundation of how we partner in care.

Here’s how you can get involved:

Virtual Advisory Council (VAC): Provide your opinion on specific topics about the patient and family experience at Community through a short survey and follow-up emails. Apply at the link below. To learn more, call 317-621-7001 or email PartnersInCare@eCommunity.com.

Patient Partners and Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC): The Patient & Family Advisory Council is a formal group that meets regularly for active collaboration between caregivers, consumers, patients, and/or their loved ones. Apply at the link below.
