Volunteer Services

Whether your assignment is to greet visitors, provide supplemental services in patient care areas, or helping staff with clerical work, you can make an important contribution to the hospital and the community.

The call for volunteerism is stronger than ever. You could make a huge difference in the lives of others as a volunteer for Providence Medical Center.


Just ask one of our 100 volunteers who range in age from 14 to 90. Commitments are flexible, and there are assignments to suit most schedules. We provide the training for all volunteer positions. We have ideal openings for those who want experience in a medical background and/or need to complete service hours.
