To assist Dignity Health East Valley in providing compassionate care and to reach out to the underserved.
Volunteers are people who give of their time, without expectation of pay, to assist with patient and non-patient care in medical facilities. All volunteer efforts add to the comfort and happiness of patients, staff, and visitors.

I've volunteered my time as far as supporting a cause by participating in walks but never have I done an "official" volunteer duty. I am currently a nursing student attending Gateway Community College and would like an opportunity to get volunteer experience within in a hospital setting. I have a good understanding of a nurse's responsibility however I'm not so sure what volunteers do within a hospital other than visit with patients (as seen in movies and TV). Suppose my experience is wonderful, then I can direct others interested in nursing to volunteer first to get a feel for a hospital setting. I'm always one for recommending good things!
