How You Can Make a Difference
Volunteers at Ridgeview are people of various ages and in different stages of their lives. The minimum age is 16 years old (age 18 in some areas). All of our volunteers share one common value: service to others. Some individuals serve as part of their retirement activities, while others want to pursue a specific career or enhance their current employment.
Ridgeview has a broad range of opportunities to accommodate different life stages, interests and schedules. Volunteers participate in many different opportunities throughout Ridgeview and the hospice program. They are an indispensable part of Ridgeview’s team. Opportunities fall into one of the following categories:
We have designed positions that enhance customer service and support a variety of departments at Ridgeview Medical Center. These volunteers provide clerical support and work on special projects.
Patient Care Services
Within inpatient and outpatient settings, volunteers work alongside Ridgeview staff to enhance the health care experience.
These volunteers provide information, directions, shuttle service and more to Ridgeview patients and visitors. They also staff the Gift Shop and Ridgeview Lily Pad Boutique.
Specialized training prepares these volunteers, so they can offer companionship and emotional support to patients and their families.
