Becoming a Sky Ridge Volunteer
A cheery smile, a kind word and a caring touch is what our incredible Sky Ridge volunteers offer our patients and their families on a daily basis. Their warmth and commitment helps set Sky Ridge apart from other hospitals. Our volunteers are from varied backgrounds and experience, but they have one thing in common—a desire to do something meaningful. They give their time and talent to make a difference with our patients, families, physicians and staff.

Sky Ridge volunteers typically contribute at least four hours once a week. Our Volunteer Services Department takes great care to match a volunteer's interests and skills to a specific Sky Ridge Medical Center assignment.
All volunteers attend a special orientation session and receive personal training within the department to which they are assigned. In addition, each volunteer receives a Sky Ridge vest or polo shirt, along with an identification badge to wear while volunteering.
