Volunteer Opportunities

Northridge Hospital volunteers are our stars. They shine, they twinkle, and they are always there when you need them. Individually and collectively they touch lives and light up each and every room.

The opportunities to make a difference are numerous, and the rewards are countless. Unique volunteer opportunities include:

  • Ambassadors
  • Gift Shop
  • Hospital Departments
  • Humor Cart
  • Surgery Liaison
  • Volunteens
  • Volunteer Escort Office and Patient Transport

Most volunteer shifts are four hours long. Scheduling is flexible. For more information on volunteer opportunities, call 818.885.8500, ext. 2961. All volunteers must have a physician release, apply for the position and complete volunteer orientation.

Puppy Love

A visit from a friendly dog can be just the right medicine. Perhaps that’s why "Paws that Refresh" our pet therapy program is such a success. Accompanied by its trained owner-volunteer, a pet therapy dog visits most of the medical floors, twice daily, delivering unconditional love to the bedside of our patients.

Golden Hour Guild

The Golden Hour Guild is a volunteer fundraising guild dedicated to supporting programs that assist trauma victims. This Guild organizes and hosts an annual Golden Hour Brunch to honor trauma patients and their doctors. All in attendance witness the patient’s progress, which provides an uplifting and emotional closure for everyone involved.


The Auxiliary is a fundraising group made up of volunteers and hospital staff. Volunteers who have been through training and work in the hospital a minimum of four hours a week are eligible to become Auxiliary members. Auxiliary members participate in several fundraisers each year and attend monthly meetings where guest speakers make regular presentations.
