Volunteer Services

Volunteers make a significant and positive difference in the lives of our patients and our staff work environment. Volunteers lend their time and talents to provide direct services or behind-the-scenes support. We are always looking for energetic and enthusiastic individuals willing to share their valuable time. Our goal is to find a match for your interests.

What will I do?

  • Volunteers assist the Rehabilitation Department with groups, outings, and event monitoring.
  • Volunteers assist with games or provide a listening ear to patients on our Civil units
  • Volunteers assist Hospital staff to escort patients to church services on-grounds or to off-ground activities, such as shopping trips.
  • Volunteers provide assistance in monthly events, in coordination with the Employee Recognition Committee.
  • Volunteers help to solicit patient donations for the patient clothing center.
