Castle

Volunteering

Adventist Health Castle's volunteers have supported our patients, associates and the community since our hospital's founding in 1963. As a volunteer, you play an integral role in the hospital's operations. You will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of services including patient transport, assisting in hospital events, working with our associates to ensure our visitors are welcomed and ensuring our patients receive quality care. Whether you're a teenager or a senior, you can make a difference in someone's life by volunteering with us.

Our volunteers do not perform any medical procedures. If you are a prospective student looking for healthcare experience, we encourage you to explore our COPE Health Scholars Program.
