Make a Difference – Volunteer at Northwest Hospital

Thank you for your interest in our volunteer program. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, applications are not being accepted at this time. Please check back for updates.

Our dedicated volunteers at Northwest Hospital are valued contributors in our mission to provide patients with the compassionate, high-quality care they need and deserve. They spend their time welcoming and assisting patients and visitors and doing other meaningful tasks across many key departments, including:

  • Gift shop
  • Front desk
  • Surgical services
  • Breast care
  • Patient advocates
  • Sterile processing
  • Emergency department
We would love for you to join our amazing volunteer team! We are always accepting applications as our volunteer program is year-round. We ask that adult volunteers (age 18 and up) commit to doing at least one 4-hour shift (same time frame, same day) per week.

Volunteer opportunities at Northwest offer several rewarding benefits, including:

  • A chance to learn new skills
  • Personal satisfaction of helping someone in need
  • A friendly, team environment
  • A $5 cafeteria meal voucher for every 4-hour volunteer shift you work
  • Free parking
The first step to becoming a volunteer is submitting an application.
