We provide volunteers with an opportunity to use their skills and abilities to make a positive impact on the patient and family experience at the Children’s Hospital.
The benefits of volunteering
Not only does volunteering benefit the patients, families, and staff you assist, but it also benefits you! Because volunteers are so important to what we do here at Navicent Health, we also like to recognize our volunteers for all the hard work they do. Our volunteers receive:
- Special celebrations throughout the year.
- Free parking pass during your volunteer shift.
- Discounts on meals in our cafeterias and gift shop.
