Volunteer Opportunities

Just as the skills and talents of our volunteers at Adventist Health Bakersfield vary, so do the opportunities for service.

Volunteer opportunities at Adventist Health Bakersfield include:

  • The Gift Gallery: The boutique-style gift shop at Adventist Health Bakersfield is always looking for volunteers who can help customers find that special item. Various shifts are available at the Gift Gallery and training is provided.
  • General Assistance: Volunteers also assist and direct visitors, help on the nursing floors, the Emergency Department, and Maternity Care Center.
  • Hospice:Volunteers can support our patients by assisting in the home office or making personal visits to our patients homes. Please contact our Volunteer Services office for more information.
  • "Angels in the ER" Program: By focusing on the Emergency Department, volunteers can help ease stressful situations that can arise from an ER visit, often the site of a patient's first introduction to the medical center. The volunteers for this program will offer non-medical assistance to patients and their families, allowing ER staff to focus on patient care.
  • Pet Partner Program: Our patients and staff love to be visited by our pups! If you have a therapy certified dog and looking to visit with patients, please contact our Volunteer Services Office for more information.
