Volunteer Services

Volunteers have been making a difference at NCH Healthcare System for over 60 years.

We offer volunteer opportunities at our two main hospital locations, and several off-site facilities.

Volunteer programs are available for full-time and seasonal residents, and local college students.

NCH volunteers are easily identified by their royal blue uniforms, friendly faces and outstanding service. Look for volunteers throughout our healthcare system, including the main lobbies, waiting rooms, gift shops and courtesy carts, as well as several behind the scenes departments.
