Volunteer opportunities

The volunteers on our team are people who want to use their skills and talents while gaining the personal satisfaction of helping others. These men, women and young adults provide caring and compassionate support throughout the hospital. Volunteers may choose from a broad range of activities, including those that provide patient contact and those that do not. Volunteer activities include:

  • Navigator
  • Pet therapy
  • Friendly visitor
  • Comfort rounding with patients
  • Kindness Kart
  • Born to Read
  • Clerical office work
