Celebrating National Volunteer Week

Northern Arizona Healthcare thanks all our volunteers, who donate countless hours to Flagstaff Medical Center and Verde Valley Medical Center.

Volunteers are a valuable asset to NAH and give the ultimate gifts: time and love. With more than 600 volunteers at NAH, their assistance enhances the quality of care we are able to offer patients, families and visitors to our hospitals.

Interested in becoming a volunteer?

Volunteering at Northern Arizona Healthcare is a great way to get involved in the community, network with others and add new skills to your resume. NAH carefully matches volunteers with assignments they will enjoy most.

Who is eligible to volunteer?

Volunteers must be 16 years or older and able to commit to four hours per week. Each volunteer is matched with an assignment that fits his or her personality, ability and schedule. Volunteer opportunities are available in all departments at both Flagstaff Medical Center and Verde Valley Medical Center. No special skills or training are needed – just an open heart and a warm smile. The diversity of our volunteers – from homemakers to professionals, students to retirees, young to mature – makes us stronger and better able to serve the healthcare needs of the community. Key qualifications for volunteers are a helpful, caring attitude and a respect for confidentiality. Our orientation process will provide you with additional information.

What are the benefits of volunteering?

Volunteering means different things to different people. You may help others through difficult times, make new friends or find a new passion. You will have the satisfaction of knowing you helped make someone’s day a little brighter and a little easier. Everyone at NAH appreciates our volunteers and recognizes their selfless contributions.

Volunteering is a great way for young adults to learn about different roles in healthcare − and can sometimes be counted towards school and university credits. If you are considering a career in healthcare, volunteering at NAH allows you to get a personal took at the industry and meet people who can help you on your career path.
