Volunteers are a vital part of LDS Hospital's Health Care Team. Our mission is to provide caring, compassionate volunteer service in support of LDS Hospital, its patients, staff, guests and community.
Who can be a Hospital Volunteer?
If you are over 18 and enjoy helping people, there is a place for you at LDS Hospital. Volunteer shifts are four hours, once a week, with an asked commitment of at least six months. Volunteering provides an opportunity to grow, learn, make new friends, share ideas and meet needs. Join our 130+ volunteer team and discover the endless rewards of service.
What areas of the hospital do volunteers work in?
- Information desk
- Gift shop
- Flower and mail delivery
- ICU waiting room

The presence of our volunteers is felt throughout the facility. We do this by greeting visitors to the hospital, delivering flowers, reading to patients, delivering mail and assisting staff in various departments.

LDS Hospital welcomes Junior Volunteers
The Junior Volunteer Program runs each summer, beginning in June and ending in August. Involvement in this program provides an excellent opportunity for young people between the ages of 14 and 17 to give service, meet people, learn new skills and gain valuable experience by being in a hospital environment.
Junior Volunteers are asked to commit to one four-hour shift in the same department for the program's 10 weeks. Opportunities are available online beginning in March, with a deadline in April. Applicants must be 14 years of age or older as of June 1st.
If you have questions, please contact us in the volunteer office at (801) 408-1771 or (801) 408-1772 or visit our Volunteer Opportunities website.
