Volunteer Services

You’ll never have a job that pays like this one.

Some of the people who make the biggest difference in the lives of patients don’t earn a penny for their time, talent, and energy. And we could never place a dollar value on their contributions.

Their official title is Volunteer, but what describes them best is “irreplaceable”.

To show our appreciation, we offer some perks for our Memorial Health volunteers

  • Free meals
  • Free annual flu shot, free TB test (if applicable)
  • Discount on Wellness Center membership (after 3 months of service)
  • Annual awards banquet
  • Volunteer vest provided

To become familiar with Memorial and its policies, all volunteers are required to complete the education competencies. A background check is also performed to ensure safety for all.
