Volunteer Programs at Saint Joseph Hospital

When you become a volunteer at Saint Joseph Hospital, you’ll find that your greatest rewards come from the heart. Volunteers play a key role in the healing presence and culture of our hospital. The touch of a hand, a friendly smile, a listening ear, is all it takes to make a difference. The need for volunteers is great, and the rewards are even greater.

Volunteering at Saint Joseph Hospital

Typically, volunteers serve an average of four hours per week. As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to grow, learn, make new friends, exchange ideas and contribute to your community. Volunteers receive complimentary uniforms, free secured parking and a free meal in the café during your shift. We do require a minimum of a 1-year commitment but hope you will love volunteering so much you won’t want to leave!
