Volunteering at Knapp

Volunteers make a huge difference at Knapp Medical Center and are one of our most valuable resources. Their kind smiles, helping hands and generous hearts are powerful means of helping our patients get well. Volunteers spread a spirit of caring and concern throughout the hallways of the hospital and clearly impact the lives of families touched by illness.

Volunteer Opportunities

Every effort is made to match the volunteer’s talents and interests with an available position.

  • Volunteers serve in some 35 different hospital departments ranging from patient care areas to office work.
  • The most visible volunteer placements are at the Information Desk, Outpatient Lobby and Gift Shop.
  • Although many volunteers join our service with the desire for patient interaction, positions are not limited to these assignments.
