Alaska Regional Hospital Volunteers
Volunteers are the hospital’s most valued ambassadors because they give their time freely to others who are in need of their friendship, work expertise, and fellowship. Here at Alaska Regional Hospital, we depend on our volunteers to help provide that personal touch to make patients and their families feel more comfortable.
Alaska Regional Hospital has a wide variety of volunteer work for anyone wanting to act as goodwill ambassadors and help with various assignments throughout the hospital. Some positions require regular hours, while others have flexible schedules. Training provided in each volunteer area. Do you have a skill or talent? Alaska Regional Hospital would love to have you share your expertise with us.
