The Volunteer Services Department is an integral partner in achieving member satisfaction. Volunteers are dedicated to providing caring and compassionate assistance to our members, guests and staff.
The purpose of the Volunteer Services Department is to provide supplementary, complementary, and support services to our health plan members, their families and visitors, and to the Kaiser Permanente staff. In addition, our objective is to provide an opportunity for individuals to volunteer their services in a community health care facility. The volunteer program is designed to provide satisfaction for the volunteer, the health plan member, and his/her family.
