We are taking a phased approach in opening our volunteer programs and are not accepting new applications at this time.
Pullman Regional Hospital offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to its community members. Applications are accepted throughout the year and orientations are held every other month.
Pullman Regional Hospital volunteer opportunities:
Chaplains—The Volunteer Chaplaincy Program at Pullman Regional Hospital provides patients, family members, and hospital staff with positive spiritual care as an integral part of the health care team.
Creative Team—The volunteers on this team knit baby hats, sew rice bags, make greeting cards, and think of small acts of kindness for our patients.
Information Desk—Information Desk volunteers are the "face" of Pullman Regional Hospital. They greet, direct and share information about the hospital. This is a great opportunity to interact with people.
Gift Garden—Gift Garden volunteers keep the gift shop running so hospital visitors can purchase gifts and cards for patients and staff.
Music Volunteers—Music volunteers are local musicians who wish to bring their talents to Pullman Regional Hospital. They may do so by playing in our lobby for the general public or some may play individually in patient rooms upon patient request. Their music is calming and conducive to a healing environment.
Patient Support Volunteers—Patient Support volunteers serve in our Emergency Department as well as other places throughout the hospital. After completing an intensive training program, these volunteers practice being a comforting and healing presence for our patients, helping to enhance the patient experience.
Prescription Pets volunteers—Prescription Pets are our trainer/animal teams that visit weekly here at Pullman Regional Hospital. These volunteers bring their Pet Partner certified animal (typically dogs) into the hospital to visit patients who are recovering.
How to Become a Community Volunteer
All Volunteers are required to complete and return a volunteer application.
Once your application packet is received, the Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to set up a time to meet and discuss your areas of interest. If accepted as a Volunteer, you will be given a background check form that must be completed and signed. You will then participate in an orientation and any required training for your specific volunteer role. Because you are volunteering in a health care facility, we must ensure that you are adequately protected. This is a protection for our patients as well. We will be requesting documentation showing two MMR and two varicella vaccines and will conduct a TB paid for by the hospital. In addition, a COVID-19 vaccination will be required.
The completed application packet may be mailed to: Pullman Regional Hospital, Volunteer Services, 835 SE Bishop Blvd., Pullman, WA 99163. You may also drop of the packet at the hospital's Information Desk or email to email@example.com.
