Levine Children's Hospital ensures excellence in children's healthcare by building partnerships with caregivers, families and the community it serves.

The partnership began long before the hospital opened its doors in 2007, when generous individuals, corporations and foundations stepped forward to help build their community hospital – a place of hope. This support continues today through volunteerism and generous contributions.

As current programs grow and receive national acclaim, new services continue to emerge. As a result, children are able to receive the highest level of care – right here in our community.

Volunteering at Levine Children's Hospital

Volunteer Restrictions: To protect our patients and staff from current viruses, volunteers are restricted from all facilities, and we won’t be processing new applications at this time. Thank you for your interest in helping our patients. We couldn’t do what we do without you and hope you’ll pursue volunteer opportunities when they become available again.

The best gift you can give a child is simple – your time. Every year, more than 500 people contribute 18,000 volunteer hours to Levine Children's Hospital, and we couldn't do it without your support. We have several volunteer opportunities whether you can be on a regular schedule or a more flexible one. See the difference a few hours of your time can make in the life of a sick child. Find out more about volunteering.

Teen Advisory Council at Levine Children's Hospital

Comprised of both patients and siblings, this group provides input and feedback directly to the hospital from the patient's and family's points of view. The Teen Council gives current and previous patients, and their siblings, a forum in which they can voice their thoughts, ideas and concerns to members of Levine Children's Hospital's leadership team, then work together to improve the quality of care and services provided for patients.

Members are given opportunities to develop and practice self-advocacy skills, develop individual leadership skills and contribute to the Levine Children's Hospital community.

The goals of this group are to serve as role models, survey current patients (some are current patients themselves) and offer peer support, and continue to offer valuable and constructive feedback to Levine Children's Hospital.

At this time, the Teen Advisory Council is only open to current and former patients and siblings. For more information about the Teen Advisory Council, please contact Mike Daly, or call 704-381-7251.

Family Advisory Council at Levine Children's Hospital

The Family Advisory Council meets monthly to discuss the family perspective of experiences at Levine Children's Hospital and make recommendations to the administration for improvement.

  • Provide input and feedback regarding the delivery of services for children and their families.
  • Collaborate with hospital leadership to improve the quality of care provided to us and our children.
