Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Volunteer Services

Children’s Hospital of Michigan is accepting applications for future volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer Today

Volunteers are an integral part of DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan, and can make a tremendous impact on a child and their family during their hospital stay. Volunteers work under the supervision of the Child Life Staff and the Nursing Staff to be sure that each child's needs are met. Children need to play and maintain some sense of their normal routine to heal and be emotionally stable. That is where volunteers can make a positive difference. Volunteers provide a wonderful gift to patients and their families by offering their time, their presence, their smile, and kind gestures that can draw a smile or even a giggle from the child, making their day as normal and happy as possible.

What will keep you busy as a volunteer?

  • Playing or interacting with children in the  activity centers or in their rooms
  • Reading to children in the various clinics and units in the hospital
  • Visiting children with your certified pet therapy dog
  • Art cart activities

The Children’s Hospital of Michigan values your commitment and understands that your time is important. Flexible hours are available from early morning to late evening on weekdays and weekends to best accommodate your schedule.

Please browse through the various sections on the right which offers additional information on volunteering. We hope to hear from you soon to help brighten the stay of the special children who seek to get better at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan.
