Volunteering at Sunrise

Volunteer at Sunrise Hospital and Sunrise Children’s Hospital

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center and Sunrise Children’s Hospital. We are incredibly grateful to our community members for their willingness to share their time, talents and hearts with the patients, families and staff at our hospitals.

Above anything else, we are looking for volunteers wanting and willing to provide exceptional customer service to the patients, guests, and staff at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center and Sunrise Children’s Hospital. We have opportunities for volunteers to greet guests, serve patients and provide clerical expertise.

Sunrise Hospital and Sunrise Children’s Hospital do NOT offer court appointed community service projects.

One-Time Service Projects
As we are a healthcare facility, all volunteers must have a background check, drug test and TB test. As a result, one-time service projects that interact with patients are not permitted. Service projects for donations to the Children’s Hospital can be coordinated by completing this request form.
