Becoming a Volunteer

The volunteer program at Hillsboro Medical Center is built around people of different backgrounds that are committed to providing a compassionate, healing environment for our patients and their families. Volunteers in the healthcare mission are placed in a variety of settings, where they spend their time and talents serving patients, families, and staff.

At this time, Hillsboro Medical Center is not accepting new volunteer applications. We will update this page when we are seeking new volunteers again.
