Both Keck Hospital of USC and USC Norris Cancer Hospital rely on a warm and devoted team of volunteers to work directly with patients and their families during their treatment and care. Volunteers work in many aspects of the hospital operations, from the gift shop to the information desk. They are the hospitals’ ambassadors to the community—no small task indeed.
If you are looking for professional experience or the opportunity to give back to your community, become a USC hospital volunteer.
Prospective volunteers are asked to complete a written application, as well as participate in a placement interview, orientation, health screening, and background for adult volunteers ages 18+ over.
Your commitment of time can make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families. For more information, please contact the hospital’s Volunteer Services Offices:
