Volunteering at Providence Seaside Hospital

Become a volunteer

Providence Seaside Hospital volunteers are truly caregivers in their own right. They influence the programs that serve vulnerable members of our community. They ease the way of other caregivers (Providence employees). They give freely of their time, energy, skills and compassion to better the patient experience. 

Our volunteers help us to meet the Providence Mission: “As people of Providence, we reveal God’s love for all, especially the poor and vulnerable, through our compassionate service.” Without our amazing volunteers, we would not be able to offer as many services to our community. 

Benefits of volunteering

Studies have shown that demonstrating compassion in our daily lives makes us happier and healthier overall. Volunteers have the opportunity to develop professional skills and experience. They also contribute to their community, gain a different perspective, meet like-minded people and see the direct impact of their service. 

Volunteer perks
