Volunteer Services

The volunteers at Virginia Mason Franciscan Health are instrumental in helping us to fulfill our mission of providing quality, compassionate health care. Each year, our team of volunteers gives more than 100,000 hours of loyal service in 100 different areas — from nursing units and gift shops, to improvement efforts and special events.

Who can volunteer?

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Our team of dedicated Volunteer Services staff will work with you to best match your particular talents and interest with our needs, and you'll receive training at the location where you choose to volunteer.

We are not currently accepting any new volunteer applications for any site.

If you are a current patient, family member, or caregiver and are interested in partnering to improve the patient experience, we ask you to consider joining our Patient Family Partner program.

Patient-Family Partners
We are currently accepting Patient Family Partner volunteer applications for Virginia Mason Medical Center, St. Anne Hospital, and St. Michael Medical Center.
