Indiana University Health North Hospital is seeking volunteer drivers for a patient shuttle that will operate from mid-April to mid-October. The shuttle, a covered eight-seat golf cart, will be used to transport hospital and Medical Office Building patients from the parking lot to the building entrances.

Volunteer drivers can choose from two weekday shifts – 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. All drivers will receive safety and operational training, and must be at least 21 years of age with a current driver’s license.

The patient shuttle program launched in April 2014. IU Health North physicians and associates raised the funds internally to purchase the golf cart to provide the new patient transportation service. In addition to driving the shuttle, other hospital volunteer opportunities are available.

To learn more or begin the volunteer application process, contact volunteer coordinator Ann Sawyer at 317-688-2927 or [email protected].
