Become a Volunteer
Volunteering with Riverside Regional Medical Center is a very rewarding experience with many opportunities. As a volunteer, you will interact and assist with patients, become a part of a great hospital family and work with others to help make a difference in our community. Our volunteers work with the public, assist visitors around the hospital or aid members of the health care team throughout the hospital.
Generally, your service is based on the number of hours you wish to devote to the hospital and our patients. As a volunteer with Riverside, you are in control of your hours.
