Volunteer

The mission of the Volunteer Services Department is to provide support services to the patients, long term care residents, visitors, and staff throughout the Medical Center.

 

We offer a unique variety of volunteer opportunities spanning the wealth of services provided to our patients and residents throughout the Long Term Care, Acute/Ambulatory Services, and Behavioral Health Services. Volunteers interested in Behavioral Health must be a minimum of 22 years old. 

 

The rewards of volunteering are many:

  • Volunteering provides valuable work experience that young people need in applying for jobs, scholarships, and college programs.
  • You may develop an interest in a medical profession or a particular skill.
  • You will receive the intangible rewards of contributing to patient care and recovery.
