Volunteer Services at Providence

Jean, a master gardener, shares her time volunteering for the grounds department. Shown here, she is weeding Herb’s Garden, one of her projects.

Providence volunteers contribute their skills and time by managing the desk in the adult critical care unit or helping in the emergency department; to providing companionship at life’s end with No One Dies Alone and pet therapy visits with patients. With a wide variety of volunteer positions to choose from, volunteers are sure to find a rewarding volunteer experience.
Volunteer Statistics
In 2013, Providence Alaska Medical Center was privileged to have over 362 on-site volunteers. They generously provided over 30,000 hours serving Providence patients and their families on over 60 departments or programs. Over 600 off-site volunteers provided beautiful hand crafted items for our patients including baby hats, blankets, bibs, quilts-all sizes, personal pillows, cast covers and chemo caps to name a few. Off-site volunteers provide holiday gifts, birthday parties, assemble personal care bags and much more.
Providence Volunteer Services thanks both our onsite and offsite volunteers for providing the many unique and wonderful services to patients, their families and staff.
Volunteering is Good for everyone!
Many people think of volunteering as mainly a way to help and serve others.  But being a volunteer can have personal benefits too - including better health.
Research shows that volunteers have greater longevity, higher functional ability, lower rates of depression and less incidence of heart disease than people who don't volunteer.
In other words, volunteering is good medicine!
