Billings Clinic's Volunteer Department is comprised of over 350 individuals from ages 15 to 96 who volunteer their time and expertise in more than 40 different departments and support areas. Our volunteers donate their skills for clerical support, patient care, administrative assistance, customer service, technical support and emotional care and assistance for our patients and their families.
The Volunteer Department at Billings Clinic plays a vital role in our mission. As medical technology advances, we are known and respected throughout the region as being "high tech" yet one of our fundamental goals is to always be "high touch." That's why our volunteers come from a wide variety of professions, from nurses, retirees, teachers, teenagers, and homemakers to accountants and coal workers. Each gives his or her unique strengths, talents, gifts and lifetime experiences to the many challenging volunteer positions at Billings Clinic.
How to Become a Volunteer (click here)
Becoming a Billings Clinic volunteer begins with a simple one-on-one visit. We want to get to know you as a person - what kinds of jobs you enjoy doing and what kind of unique skills and talents you have to offer. We're sensitive to your needs and your motivation, including how many hours you have to offer, as well as why you feel volunteering is important.
We're committed to finding the right position for you and an opportunity to do what you like. It is only through this type of partnership that you can find meaningful work that is of value to you, as well as to our organization.
For new volunteers, you'll begin with a day of orientation and tour of our medical facility to become better informed about Billings Clinic. Then we'll match your volunteer work area preferences and schedule to one of our departments or programs and you'll be on your way to a new and exciting volunteer career filled with fun, service and great memories!
