Help Make a Difference: Volunteer at VPH

Delivering service excellence would not be possible without the help of our valuable volunteers. Being a part of the Valley Presbyterian Hospital community means we all have the power to touch the lives of patients and their families in immeasurable ways. Our volunteers provide assistance and support services to staff, patients and visitors across departments.

In 2015 alone, our volunteers contributed a total of 74,703 hours across 52 departments. The Volunteer Escort/Dispatch Office responded to 58,138 task requests.

If you'd like to join our volunteer team, or would like more information, please contact Director of Volunteer Services Virginia Napoles at (818) 902-2932 or virginiarivero.napoles@valleypres.org
