If you are motivated to donate your time and talents, we invite you to join the dedicated volunteers at HCA Florida Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee, FL.

Volunteer opportunities (18+)

Your time, talent and special touch are greatly needed. In return, enjoy new friendships and a great deal of personal satisfaction. Volunteers help make that difference. By offering their time, our volunteers provide support, encouragement and a fresh perspective to patients and the hospital. In return, volunteers become part of our family, and they join the team of physicians, nurses, staff members and others who make our patients feel at home.

Volunteer opportunities exist in many areas from 6:00am to 8:00pm Monday through Friday. The Auxiliary officers work closely with each new volunteer to find an assignment that matches his or her interests, skills and motivation.

Benefits of volunteering

In addition to helping others and meeting new friends, you may also enjoy the chance to learn new skills and develop new interests. As a volunteer at HCA Florida Raulerson Hospital, you will be invited to an annual recognition banquet, can participate in hospital social activities and will receive service pins and a complimentary breakfast and lunch in the hospital cafeteria for each four-hour shift worked. The rewards are great!

If you are available for four-hour shifts, one or several times a week, and would like to volunteer for a worthwhile cause, we need you! You must be 18 years old or older and able to commit to a minimum of one year of service.
