It’s your time – you tell us when you are available. The majority of volunteering opportunities are Monday-Friday 8AM-5PM, although we do have some community events on weekends that can always use a helping hand.

WHY
1. You get to help people. First and foremost, health care is all about helping people in need. Your contribution of time will help us better serve all of our patients in our local communities. We are all in this together.
2. You learn a lot. Volunteering is a great and simple way to learn new skill as well as continually hone old ones. You can be working in our administration, medical, dental, behavioral health, or pharmacy departments, or helping organize fundraising, educational and/or community outreach events.
3. It looks great in resumes. Not only can you list your experience with PCHS in your resume, you can use the time to network with healthcare professionals and build a network of people you can count on.
4. You gain experience in the health industry. We make sure to always foster an educational and embracing environment for all new and existing volunteers. If this is your current field of study, volunteering is a great way to learn more about your future career and even ask current healthcare professionals about the healthcare industry.
