Volunteers

The Volunteer Services Program at Clark Fork Valley Hospital provides Sanders County residents opportunities to use life experiences, skills and talents to benefit their neighbors (our patients) and at the same time support hospital staff and operations.

Do you have life experiences, formal training, a spirit of caring and sharing, and extra time to give of yourself? If you answered yes, consider joining our CFVH family of volunteers.
