We all like to picture ourselves as making a contribution. Even something that may seem insignificant can make a big impact. For a hospital patient, a smile and a few words of encouragement can make a difference. Volunteers help make that difference. By offering their time, our volunteers provide support, encouragement and a fresh perspective to patients and the hospital. In return, volunteers become part of our family, and they join the team of physicians, nurses, staff members and others who make our patients feel at home.

Volunteer opportunities exist in guest relations, patient services and office support 8am to 8pm seven days a week. The Auxiliary Officers work closely with each new volunteer to find an assignment that matches his or her interests, skills, and motivation.
