“There is no better exercise for your heart, than reaching down and helping to lift someone up.”
— Bernard Meltzer, Volunteer

There are many benefits to volunteering, especially in health care. People who regularly provide a service of giving back to others often experience an increased sense of personal fulfillment, less stress, and feelings of happiness. Each year at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles, volunteers donate hours of service in over 40 departments throughout our campus. Opportunities include:

Direct Patient Care Business Services
  • Patient Care Units
  • Outpatient Services
  • Emergency Department
  • Pediatric Departments
  • Business Offices
  • Outpatient Clinics
  • Concierge Services

Becoming a Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles volunteer is easy if you meet the following criteria. You must:

  • Commit to a minimum of 200 services hours over one year
  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Be able to communicate well in English (second language skills are a plus)
