Volunteer Services

Community members working together as partners

Each year adults and students donate hundreds of volunteer hours to Inland Hospital. Men, women, young adults and teens give generously of their time and talents to help us further our mission “to care for and serve our community” and be part of our culture of excellent service and quality.

Some volunteers work in areas with direct contact with patients and families; others are involved in "behind the scenes" activities which enhance the care provided by the hospital and our medical practices.  

Volunteers share a common bond, to give back to their community by donating their services to Northern Light Inland Hospital.
