Volunteers are key members of the HSHS St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital family. They help carry out the hospital’s healing mission while demonstrating the hospital’s values of Respect, Care, Competence, and Joy.
Volunteers serve in different areas of the hospital. Some have regularly scheduled hours while others serve “on-call” for special projects.
