Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers play a very important role at St. Joseph’s Hospital by helping us to provide high quality, cost effective healthcare to the St. Joseph’s community. They do this a number of ways:

  • Augmenting and expanding the services provided by our staff.
  • Providing supplemental services which contribute to patient care and satisfaction.
  • Assisting non-patient care departments with clerical support.
  • Helping to spread the word about the good things happening at St. Joseph’s within the community.
