Saint Francis Healthcare initiated its Volunteer Program in 1985 for members
of our community to provide support services to our patients, families
and visitors while fulfilling personal goals. Since then, our volunteers
have contributed countless hours in support of Saint Francis Healthcare’s
mission of serving together in the spirit of the Gospel as a compassionate
and transforming healing presence within our communities.
They are sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, moms, dads, grandparents—they
are your neighbors. Saint Francis Healthcare volunteers come from various
backgrounds with many different interests and talents. They are:
- College and high-school students seeking potential career paths
- Working people who want to support their community
- Parents with just a few hours to spare
- Retired men and women who want to remain active
Volunteers help out in different areas, ministering to the comfort of our
patients, families and visitors. Volunteers serve at Saint Francis Hospital
and the LIFE (Living Independently for Elders) Center.
Volunteers must be dependable, mature and demonstrate a positive attitude.
All Saint Francis Healthcare volunteers are oriented to hospital policies
and procedures. The volunteer screening process consists of an interview,
drug and TB testing, background checks, completion of reference forms
and additional paperwork, and attendance at a volunteer orientation.
The lives of our patients, visitors and staff members have been greatly
impacted by the time and talents of our volunteers. If you are interested
