Becoming a Volunteer?
There are many ways to get involved. Whether you want to volunteer directly with our patients and families, or in an administrative role, you can make a difference in someone’s life…starting with your own! Our volunteers often say, “I get back so much more than I give!”

Our volunteers are a critical part of our care team, serving our patients and families in both direct care and supporting roles. If you are looking for a meaningful way to give of your time……

If you are interested in volunteering or would like to schedule a visit, please contact Leslie Karnbach @ or Susan Parish at 479-872-3392 or
