Specialty Programs

No One Dies Alone Program

No One Dies Alone is a program that provides volunteers who offer a reassuring presence at the bedside of a dying patient who would otherwise be alone. No One Dies Alone provides a dignified death to individuals who have no family or close friends to sit with them at the end of life. Through this program, we are able to provide a compassionate presence for all our patients.

NICU Cuddle Program

At Rose, we believe no baby should go unhugged. Often, babies in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) need added touch and cuddles. Many studies have proven the importance of touch to a baby’s health and healing. Our NICU cuddle volunteers supplement parents’ touch and promote baby’s healing. To join us for our cuddle program, please contact Mary Williams, Manager of Volunteer Services, at 303-320-2762 or at Mary.Williams@HealthONEcares.com. Shifts will begin in 2019.

Undergrad Pre-Med Program

Rose is beginning a specialized undergraduate pre-med volunteer program. This program is specifically designed for students preparing for medical school. It gives the student unmatched opportunities, including rounding with physicians, receiving educational opportunities and exposure to the hospital life as a volunteer. This program is scheduled to begin in spring 2019. To learn more, please contact Mary Williams, Manager of Volunteer Services, aat 303-320-2762 or at Mary.Williams@HealthONEcares.com

Our History

Rose Medical Center has a long and esteemed history as a Denver institution. With origins in Jewish teachings, traditions and community, Rose's founders built the hospital to "serve the need of every creed." Our volunteer program has played a significant role in this history. The programs began with our original volunteers, The Gray Ladies who often rolled bandages for patients. The program has evolved to the robust program it is today. We encourage you to join us in making a difference at Rose Medical Center!
