Volunteers provide supplemental services to the staff, patients and families at the hospitals. You will see them throughout the building escorting patients from one department to another, assisting staff in nursing units, outpatient programs, rehabilitation services, pastoral care and many other areas. You will recognize them by their name badges and unique volunteer uniforms.
We are excited to be recruiting volunteers for a new role of "patient and family advisors". To learn more about this volunteer opportunity click the "Partnering with patient and family advisors" pamphlet.
