Palliative Care is actively caring for people with life-threatening diseases. By concentrating on the patient and family as a unit, we are better able to help manage distressing physical and emotional symptoms. This assignment focuses on comfort and companionship, soothing the patient and family to face challenging health events.  

It takes a village!  CIH runs smoothly thanks to the hard work and fortitude of many “behind-the-scenes” departments.  Support CIH administrative professionals to develop systems and maintain cohesive teams to accomplish efficient operations in a specific department such as admitting, payroll, medical records, nursing office, etc. 

This is a national program touching the live of 4 million+ children and families nationwide, with a special focus on low-income communities.  Volunteer readers engage children ages 6 months to 12 years old in a positive reading experience, and in addition model storytelling behavior for parents.  Get excited about books-it’s fun!  Come join us for story time and show parents just how fun reading can be.  CIH is looking for volunteer readers in all languages, but most especially Urdu, Hindi, Bengali, Spanish, and Chinese.

CIH Council upholds the best in customer experience.  Our volunteers provide a warm welcome to new patients and families with a smile and assistance to find their way, with logistical information and a comfort kit to orient them to the new short-stay environment.  They will also observe overall operational flow and will take the lead in suggestions to improve the patient experience.  We encourage all levels of staff and interested community members to become greeters to help foster empathy for our patients. By “following in the patient’s footsteps” you can contribute to improving the overall patient experience at Coney Island Hospital.
