PIH Health’s volunteer team provides important assistance in our vision to put Patients First. Our volunteer team helps to nurture, advance, and protect the health and well-being of patients. In order to fully immerse our volunteers into teams that care for our patients and support the hospital’s work, we ask all volunteers meet certain requirements. We greatly appreciate your desire to help us support a safe and healthy environment for all of PIH Health’s families, patients, associates, and volunteers.
