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 UK Good Samaritan Hospital, Kentucky Children’s Hospital, ambulatory clinics, and all across the health care campus.
Men, women and teens who are at least 14 years of age are welcome and encouraged to join us in caring for the people of the Commonwealth. See our
