Hospital Volunteers

As a not-for-profit community hospital, Excelsior Springs Hospital places the health and well-being of our patients and visitors as our highest priority. Serving in a multitude of jobs, our volunteers contribute greatly to this mission of quality care for all patients. Each year, this vibrant, active group of women and men donate over 4,500 service hours to ESH.

As a Hospital volunteer, you are part of more than 200 employees, doctors and other volunteers, all with an important role in providing the finest healthcare we can to our community.

Our volunteer program is for men and women age 18 and older. Members are covered by the hospital's insurance while working.
