Mount St. Mary Hospital has a thriving Volunteer Program of talented, motivated, compassionate community members who contribute their time and energy to the wellbeing of our residents.

Volunteers learn new skills, have opportunities for personal development and build community connections.

Volunteers enhance services to residents beyond the scope of the exemplary care that the residents receive from staff.  Services provided by volunteers support the residents’ personal dignity and worth.  Volunteers also add a compassionate personal touch enriching the quality of residents’ lives.

“I enjoy meeting the wonderful and interesting people at Mount St. Mary -- the residents, staff and volunteers.” 

R.S., Volunteer
