Do you want to make a difference? Every human being needs a purpose beyond themselves. There is no greater role than serving others. To that end, our volunteers represent a diverse community of caring people, who lead the way in giving quality customer service and making the patient experience one that truly amazes.
Whether comforting a sick patient or giving a helping hand to hospital team members, Baptist Health volunteers make a real difference. Volunteers work in a variety of locations such as nursing units, information desks, therapy areas and more.
