A New Hospital. A New Purpose. A New You.
Volunteers are an integral component of the day-to-day operations at Marian. With a wide variety of education and work experience that complements the wide variety of positions, our Volunteers share a common goal: a desire to be of service to Marian’s patients, guests, and staff.
Our Volunteers come from every part of the Santa Maria Valley and provide service and support in many areas, including:
- Hospitality and reception services
- Patient and family escorts
- Patient care support services
- Clerical services
- Gift shop
- Nursery nannies
- Extended Care Center
- Spiritual Care
- Children’s Center
- Mission Hope Cancer Center
Currently, Marian has approximately 400 men, women, and teens volunteering for more than 71,000 hours annually, and with the opening of our new beautiful facility in March 2012, the opportunities for Volunteers are expanding. We are in need of Volunteers for not only the usual Monday through Friday daytime shifts but also evenings and weekends. While many of the daytime shifts are a minimum of 4 hours, the new evening and weekend shifts will be 2 to 3 hours depending on each department’s needs. These newer, shorter evening and weekend hours will enable those who work, are in school, or are otherwise unavailable during the day the opportunity to join us in volunteering.
If you are interested in joining our family, making new friends, and having a wonderful time while serving our community. Call our Volunteer Office at 805-739-3520 to learn more.
