Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us at Baptist Health. 

Out of concern for the safety and wellbeing of our volunteers and those we serve during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have currently suspended all volunteer services inside our hospitals.  

We are hopeful to resume these services in the future. In the meantime, you may reach out to your local hospital’s volunteer coordinator for opportunities that may exist to serve the community outside of the hospital campus.   

There is no greater role than serving others. While comforting a patient or giving a helping hand to hospital team members, Baptist Health volunteers make a real difference.

We offer a wide array of opportunities at Baptist Health such as:

  • Baptist Health Inpatient Units
  • Main Information Desk
  • Critical Care Unit
  • Surgery Center
  • Emergency Department
  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  • Foundation Office and Events
