Volunteer at Our Hospital
Olive View-UCLA Medical Center volunteers play a key role in our caring healthcare team.  Volunteers provide thousands of service hours each year to Olive View hospital and help support our patient care mission.  Consider the many ways you can make a difference through volunteering.

Volunteering provides an exceptional opportunity to take an active role in your community, build skills, make a difference, and explore career opportunities.  Countless volunteers have gone on to pursue careers in the healthcare field as a result of their volunteer experience.  Most volunteer shifts are flexible to your schedule.  You will be eligible to receive a letter of recommendation and documentation of community service after the completion of 50 hours of service.
