I Want to Volunteer at:

Thank you to all of our volunteers!
You help make us remarkable.

Welcome and thank you for your interest in volunteering at Norton Healthcare. Your willingness to give of yourself to those in our community who are in need of care mirrors the dedication and contributions of more than 1,000 active volunteers. Norton Healthcare volunteers are people who make a difference in the lives of patients, their families and medical staff by providing essential services and lending support to our hospital communities. Volunteers, age 13 and up, set an example for all of us - they work simply to be of service to others. Please recognize from the start how very important you are, and how proud you should be of wanting to join our wonderful team of volunteers.

Norton Healthcare's volunteers are an important part of our mission to provide quality health care to all those we serve. Our remarkable team of employees and volunteers are committed to upholding Norton Healthcare's vision of setting the standard for quality and caring. Sharing kindness and compassion through volunteering is a tradition at Norton Healthcare that dates back to some of our hospitals' earliest years more than 100 years ago.

If you choose to participate in this tradition of excellence, you will be rewarded with gratification and enjoyment for your gift of time and talent. You will form new friendships, experience new challenges and take pride in being actively involved in a meaningful service. Again, thank you for your interest in volunteering at Norton Healthcare. We look forward to meeting you.
