Auxiliary Volunteers Provide Patient Comfort in Over 20 Service Areas | Good Samaritan Hospital of San Jose

You don’t necessarily need to be a physician or a registered nurse in order to help provide patient care. If you’re interested in helping your fellow San Jose area residents during their time of need, then becoming an auxiliary volunteer for Good Samaritan Hospital may be right for you.


Our auxiliary volunteer program, open to both adults and high school students, strives to provide assistance whenever necessary. While volunteering does not include medical services or nursing duties, volunteers do provide a unique and valuable service—providing comfort, friendliness, and social interaction with patients and visitors. While a background in volunteer work or medicine is appreciated, no special skills are necessary in order to become an auxiliary volunteer. Instead, our hospital staff members work closely with our volunteers so that daily tasks are appropriate for their level of experience, personal skills, and overall interests.

Most of our volunteers visit the hospital for least 3-4 hours a week. However, with a number of placement areas and shifts available, the more time you have to volunteer, the better. Our volunteers can work in over 20 different service areas at Good Samaritan Hospital, our Breast Care Center, and our Mission Oaks campus. Some of these volunteer services include:

  • Medical, surgical, and rehabilitation services to patients.
  • Working at the visitor and patient escort desk.
  • Filing paperwork with the medical records department.
  • Helping in the labor and delivery department, mother-baby services, and pediatric department.
  • Accommodating visitors in the gift shop.
  • Working in the cardiac care center.

Our volunteers can also help out in our hospital pharmacy and emergency room doing a number of clerical tasks.

If you’re interested in the Junior Auxiliary program (High School Students) or the Auxiliary program (18 years and up), visit our website for more information and to download our volunteer application. Contact San Jose’s Good Samaritan Hospital online or call (408) 559-2345.
