UK HealthCare Volunteer Services offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities across the UK HealthCare enterprise. We provide community volunteers with an opportunity to use their skills and abilities to make a positive impact on the patient and family experience. Volunteers are needed in the UK Chandler and UK Good Samaritan emergency departments, Surgery and ICU family lounges, gift shops, at Good Samaritan Hospital, Kentucky Children’s Hospital, ambulatory clinics and all across the health care campus.
