What to Expect as a Volunteer

When applying for a volunteer position, you will meet with our volunteer coordinator to discuss your skills and interests, and they will help coordinate an assignment that fits your needs, as well as the needs of the hospital.

Volunteers are an extension of our team. Once you are assigned a position, you will attend orientation, go through training and receive an ID badge.

Volunteers show a sincere commitment to their work. Collectively, our volunteers give an average of 45,200 hours of service each year. We value your time and contributions. Each year, volunteers are honored at an annual luncheon. This gives us an opportunity to celebrate and recognize all of our volunteers. Volunteers receive a recognition pin for every 500 hours contributed to our hospital.

Additionally, volunteers receive a discount on meals from the hospital cafeteria.
