Mountain View Hospital Volunteer Program

Our goal at Mercy St. Francis is to provide excellent care to our patients, their families and visitors that we serve. Our volunteers play a critical role in reaching, exceeding, and maintaining that goal not only to our patients but to our community thru the Mercy Auxiliary Thrift Store.  The Mercy St. Francis Auxiliary has been a vital part of the hospital since 1959, so we thank you for your interest in becoming a part of our team.

The Mercy St. Francis Auxiliary gives over 9,000 hours yearly providing volunteer services to Mercy Hospital St. Francis and Mercy Auxiliary Thrift Store. Let us help you find the volunteer opportunity that is just right for you.  We feel it is important to place volunteers in areas that truly touch their hearts.
