Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf will host a new-volunteer orientation for community-minded individuals who want to become a volunteer at the hospital. The orientation session will be held 1-4 p.m. ET on Friday, Aug. 15 in the conference room at Sacred Heart.

At the core of the Sacred Heart's long and proud tradition of caring for the sick, the poor, the aged and the vulnerable, stands a group of volunteers whose willing hearts and helping hands have served generations of families during their time of need. Today, volunteer roles within the hospital include greeting visitors, escorting and assisting guests, as well as helping with special projects throughout the hospital.  

Sacred Heart volunteers share a sense of pride in the service they provide to the families who seek care at our door. Some volunteers work a few hours a week, while others serve a few days a week.

Several volunteers are needed to provide assistance in the gift shop, physical therapy, and at the welcome desk, on shifts that range from morning to evening seven days a week.

The rewards of volunteering are as individual as each volunteer, and all volunteers enjoy meal vouchers, free flu vaccines and an open invitation to participate in Sacred Heart’s special events.
