Join Your Extended Family

The OSF Saint Paul Community Board and staff are honored to work with caring individuals who volunteer their time, talent and/or treasure to make a positive difference in the health of our community.

Whether you are a volunteer, auxiliary member or foundation donor, we thank you for helping us provide exceptional care to the hundreds of patients and their families who need healing, help and hope each year.

And, we are always looking for more individuals with warm hearts and helping hands to join the OSF Saint Paul extended family of care givers.

Volunteer opportunities for all ages are available through OSF Saint Paul Medical Center. The auxiliary is 65 years young and still growing to meet the needs of the hospital through volunteer fundraising. When you are a volunteer or member of the auxiliary, you will be working with those, like you, who want to reach out and help others—it’s a positive, rewarding and fun experience.

Volunteering is a Healthy Habit

OSF Saint Paul thanks each and every volunteer who donates their time, energy, and talents to help assist patients, staff, and physicians. Their value goes beyond the number of hours they give to the hospital - it is their smile, their extra effort, their compassion, and their caring - this is what makes our volunteers and escorts special.
