John Muir Health -- Guest and Volunteer Services

John Muir Health provides a diverse range of volunteer opportunities. Volunteers have been an integral part of John Muir Health since the early days of our medical centers. Over 1,600 volunteers now donate their time throughout our campuses, health facilities, and outreach programs.

Whether you're in school, retired, an empty-nester, new to the area, or even working full-time, you'll find ways to serve your community through John Muir Health. Some volunteers provide service behind the scenes, while others interact directly with patients, visitors, staff, and doctors. We will help match you with a role that suits your interests and abilities.
