Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Volunteer at Valley Baptist

Utilize Your Unique Gifts

At Valley Baptist Medical Center, we consider our volunteers a vital part of treatment. Whether offering kind words or considerate gestures, your volunteer service has the power to renew hope in the hearts of our patients and their families. Become a vital part of the hospital and aid our patients, families, visitors and employees.

Hospital Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers serve in more than 30 different departments of the hospital. Duties range from office work to delivering patient items to driving a golf cart. Most volunteers work one-half day a week. However, there are many options available if you have fewer, or more, hours available to give. And you can work at a time that’s convenient for you — we have day, evening and weekend shifts available.

Our Student Volunteer Program

Students can also get involved at Valley Baptist. We offer a student summer program for those 15 years of age or older. Students select one of two summer sessions (June or July). Each session is Monday to Friday for three weeks, four hours a day. Applications for the summer program are accepted March 1, with a submission deadline of April 16.
