In addition, you will assist our staff in fulfilling our hospital mission of providing quality medical care to the communities we serve.
All age groups are encouraged to apply -- senior retirees, adults, college and high school students. High school students must be 16 years of age. Students who must accrue 40 hours of community service for academic credit should provide notice from their counselor. Clerical and indirect patient care positions are available. Volunteers are also needed for assistance at community health fairs.

The positions available to Volunteers at West Sub are non-medical in nature. However, there are a number of positions that do perform services for patients, such as the patient/family greeters in several departments. Those positions are noted in the descriptions that you can access by mouse, Click HERE.
