Event description

Description

Emergency Department Volunteers Wanted!

KP-ED volunteers provide support and assistance to the Emergency Department (ED) staff, patients and their families from the time the patient presents to the ED for care until they are discharged. The focus of the ED Volunteer position is to provide comfort and other miscellaneous services to ED patients and their families. The volunteers are instrumental in helping keep them informed as to what is going on during their ED visit.

Volunteering at Kaiser Permanente is NOT a gateway to employment. For employment opportunities, go online to KP.org/jobs.
