Through the generous gift of time, talents and personal interests, our volunteers provide crucial support and aid to the continuing mission of Faith Regional Health Services. Every day, a dedicated team of men, women and teen volunteers perform rewarding, enjoyable and valuable services for our patients, their families and the staff at Faith Regional. Your support has allowed Volunteer Services to make a 5-year pledge of $250,000 to the Medical Office South Building.
Volunteers act as liaisons between the hospital and the larger community and are ambassadors of goodwill. There are no special requirements to be a volunteer, except that you must be 14 years of age or older.
Volunteer opportunities are available to assist in a variety of ways, including direct patient contact areas involving family, visitor or staff or attending the gift shop. A good volunteer simply has an interest in helping, a positive attitude, exercises discretion and is dependable.
Rewarding Opportunities. Meaningful Experiences.
