Volunteering

Our volunteers are men and women from varied backgrounds, with different abilities and motivations for volunteering. They share a common interest in helping others and a firm commitment to being a vital, caring member of our health care team.

The Volunteer Department is “decentralized” - all volunteers are assigned to specific departments. To ensure a meaningful volunteer experience, we attempt to place individuals in areas where their skills, talents, interests, and abilities would best match a department’s need.

For additional information on volunteering at Sherman Oaks Hospital, please call (818) 995-5270 to speak with the Marketing Director, Steve Brand, or email him at sbrand@primehealthcare.com
