If you are looking for a unique opportunity to serve others, make new friends and learn new skills, consider volunteering for UofL Hospital and UofL Brown Cancer Center. We depend a great deal on our volunteers and their gift of time. As we grow and change, volunteers are needed to meet our changing environment.

As a volunteer, you can enjoy a genuine sense of satisfaction from helping our staff in giving high quality, compassionate care to our patients and visitors. Each year our volunteers contribute tens of thousands of hours helping us provide high quality care to our patients, visitors, and community. They bring cheerful smiles and unhurried care to our patients, their families, friends, our physicians and staff.
