Have a Rewarding Volunteer Experience at Southcoast Health

Each year, volunteers of all ages donate hours of service to Southcoast Health’s three hospitals, as well as Southcoast VNA. Our volunteers in Fall River, New Bedford, Wareham and Fairhaven, MA are an essential and appreciated part of the Southcoast team. There are a variety of ways to serve, and volunteering at your local hospital can be a rewarding and fun experience.

Whether you are looking to spend an hour, day or all week volunteering, there are numerous options. If you would like to make serving Southcoast a regular commitment, consider joining an auxiliary or guild at one of our hospitals. When it comes to volunteering, there is always something to do.
