Volunteering at Memorial Hospital

Volunteering is a labor of love and is an integral part of Bakersfield Memorial Hospital. Our volunteers include Auxiliary members, high school/college students, working-adults, retirees, and four- legged family members.

Each volunteer generously shares unique talents, skills, and their time to help meet the needs of our patients and guests. Our volunteers represent our entire community and we appreciate the commitment and contribution of their humankindness.

The purpose of serving is to provide personable non-clinical care and compassion to each person we interact with.
