Volunteer Program


We invite you to become a part of our dynamic volunteer team, to make a difference in both the hospital and the community.

We rely on the talent of our volunteers to support our staff by greeting, visiting with and escorting patients and their families; distributing comfort items, filing, organizing and other clerical duties, and much more.

Special Volunteer Groups

Teen Volunteer

Established in 1958, the teen volunteer program provides high school and college students the opportunity to observe, firsthand how important quality healthcare is to the community, and how their participation helps meet the individual needs of patients and their families. Plus, our teen volunteer program can fulfill school service hour requirements.


Volunteer chaplains from our community visit Monday - Friday to address our patients' spiritual needs or to serve through intercessory prayer. We welcome volunteers who demonstrate a genuine interest in providing spiritual support for their neighbors in an interfaith healthcare setting.

Pet Assisted Therapy

Pet Assisted Therapy volunteers offer comfort to patients by bringing precious and specially trained pets to visit. Patients and families love visiting with these cuddly dogs, and even our pediatric patients enjoy a visit when they are here. Special requirements are needed to bring your pet to our facility. Contact the volunteer office for more information.
