Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteer staff is an important part of the hospital’s operation. You see their smiling faces in the Gift Shop, at the information desks and transporting patients. We also have volunteers, like the Bootscooters, who represent Decatur Morgan outside of the walls of the hospital. Local clergy volunteer their time providing chaplain services to our patients, staff and visitors.

We love our volunteers!
