Our volunteers help hospital personnel, patients and visitors in a variety of ways.
There are volunteer opportunities for adults in both clinical and nonclinical areas of our hospitals. Examples include helping at welcome desks, providing directions, assisting the gift shop or checking on patients. Depending on your interests and experience, a role will be determined that best meets your comfort level and availability.
