When it comes to delivering a level of care that exceeds our patients' expectations, Sunnyside Community Hospital volunteers are as important to our success as any member of our staff.

Volunteers provide a vital service in our hospital for patients, families and visitors. If working with people is your desire, we have the volunteer role for you! What you receive will be as significant as what you share. You can volunteer as little as four hours a week with service opportunities seven days a week! Join a caring team of volunteers, and allow yourself an opportunity to share your special talents and skills!

Are you ready to make a real difference in the lives of patients? We'd love to hear from you! Learn more by filling out a volunteer application.
