Florida Hospital Volunteer Services is looking to recruit quality program participants to become part of our award winning health care team and to play an integral role in our philanthropic legacy of extending the healing ministry of Christ.

Being Florida's largest not-for-profit health care system, we offer extensive opportunities to get involved, and give back to your local community.
