favorite Volunteering at KSB

KSB Hospital is known by the motto “It’s The People,” and this is no exception when it comes to our volunteers.

Many individuals find that volunteering at KSB Hospital offers an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life and experience the joy of reaching out to others. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, but there is one thing that each of them share: the pride they have in being an integral part of KSB.

You put in only as much time as a volunteer as you can spare. Some volunteers work once or twice a week; others work once or twice a month. We will work with you as much as possible to coordinate the time and department you hope to volunteer in.
