We invite you to explore the numerous, unique ways you can help fulfill Sunnyview's mission to improve the lives of people with disabilities ... and the lives of their families.
Volunteers are the hospital's best ambassadors! We believe that they play a role within the hospital that is absolutely priceless. Thanks to our volunteers, we are able to enhance the care we provide to our patients and their families.
As a Sunnyview volunteer, you'll have many opportunities to interact with clinical staff and patients. And, our specialized rehabilitation programs lead to challenging, patient-focused opportunities -- if that's what you want to do. If you prefer, you can choose a volunteer position in one of our support departments.
The possibilities are virtually endless. Volunteers make a difference!
