Fairview Health Services volunteers share their gifts of time, talent and compassion. Our volunteers enjoy serving the community, exploring careers in health care and making new friends. We value our volunteers and consider them important members of our team. We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities available in many locations. Volunteer placement varies based on location and position availability.
Volunteers and their dogs help patients across the Fairview system cope with stress, anxiety and illness. Patients that are able to interact with pets during their hospital or hospice stay have been shown to experience decreased pain and increased mood and energy levels.
