Our volunteers come from all walks of life. We have volunteers from age 14 (the minimum) to over 90. They include students, retirees, people with full-time careers, vocational work group, and others who choose to spend their extra time serving their community.
Volunteers work with us in nearly every area of the hospital. We depend on our volunteers to provide the high-quality care our community deserves. You may choose to serve patients and their families in inpatient or outpatient areas, assist our support services staff members, provide clerical support, or become involved with our community outreach programs.
The following are just some of the many hospital areas, programs, and roles where you can volunteer your time:
Our staff members and volunteers all make mutual commitments to provide quality service. Because of the time we spend to train our volunteers, we expect a minimum of three to four hours of volunteer service each week, depending on individual assignments. The total minimum commitment is 100 hours per year for adults and 50 hours per year for students.
Certain volunteer programs, such as the Patient Representative and Surgical Liaison programs, require a minimum commitment of nine months to one year of service.
