Volunteer at St. Joseph Hospital
St. Joseph Hospital has a dynamic volunteer program comprised of more than 900 volunteers ranging from age 14 to over 90 years of age. Our dedicated volunteers serve in more than 40 areas of the hospital, some directly with patients and visitors, and others in support areas. Departments that utilize volunteers include the Emergency Department (18 years minimum), Mammography, Nursing Units, Radiology, Surgery Prep and Recovery, two beautiful Gift Shops, and Admitting. There are also clerical support assignments for our volunteers who would like to help with projects in an office setting. Many volunteers prefer Messenger Service where they stay physically active running a variety of patient support errands including discharging patients.
As we continue to offer the exceptional care at St. Joseph Hospital that Orange County residents have relied upon for more than 80 years, private support - both financial contributions and volunteerism - is critical. Supporting St. Joseph Hospital presents a compelling opportunity for employees, physicians, individuals, corporations and community foundations to support care that has a reputation for quality and innovation - in an environment where values are embraced.
