Become A Volunteer (18 YRS OLD+)

null

Good Samaritan Hospital is currently seeking friendly volunteers to serve at Good Samaritan Hospital and our Mission Oaks campus.  Our goal is to enhance the patient experience by offering kind, compassionate, non-clinical assistance to our patients and their loved ones.  Whether you are going into healthcare and want some experience inside a hospital, or you have time and would like to give back to the community, you’ll find volunteering at Good Sam to be a very rewarding experience.

The first step is to attend an information meeting. 

You’ll learn everything you need to know about the process, as well as a review of the current volunteer opportunities.  We have over 25 areas that volunteers serve.

If accepted into the program, health screening requirements include TB skin test, immunity titers and annual flu shot.  Services are provided free of charge by Good Sam’s Employee Health office. You must also attend basic training and pass a criminal background check before being cleared for volunteer service.  Most volunteers join The Auxiliary of Good Samaritan Hospital and pay $15 annual dues.

A commitment of one year of service is required; however, you are welcome to stay longer. Typically, volunteers are assigned to a weekly shift of 3-4 hours.

ADULTS (18+): If you are in school for PT, OT or Speech Therapy and need observation hours, please call 408-559-2345 and leave your name and phone number.  Someone will return your call.

We do have a NICU baby cuddling program; however, there is currently a waitlist of approximately one year.  Many become volunteers in other areas while waiting to be a cuddler.
