Niagara Health is thankful for the special partnerships formed with more than 850 community members, our Hospital Volunteers and Auxiliary Members. They contribute the highest quality of care for our patients through their hard work, compassion and dedication.

Niagara Health Volunteers


The services and programs volunteers provide are an invaluable support that complements the work of our staff. Our volunteers are a diverse group who range in age from 16 to 96 and come from all walks of life. Volunteers choose to share skills, abilities, experience and talent to benefit their communities. Through service, they learn new skills, make new friends, explore career options, network and remain actively engaged in the community during the golden years of retirement.

The types of volunteer Positions available at any one or more of Niagara Health sites include:

  • Patient and Family Care
  • Auxiliary Membership
  • Fundraising and Retail
  • Information and Customer Service

Commitment: A typical volunteer must commit to a consistent weekly shift of two to four hours, for a minimum one year.

She is just one of 850 volunteers working in valuable roles, helping us provide extraordinary caring to our patients every day.
