The LAC+USC Department of Patient & Volunteer Services Program provides patient-focused
Volunteering at LAC+USC Medical Center provides many opportunities
for citizens to take an active volunteer role in their surrounding communities. The positive
exposure given to these individuals serves to enhance the County's image as a
catalyst for their personal development and career direction. Countless volunteers
have gone on to pursue careers in the healthcare field as a result of their volunteer experience.
Through community outreach efforts from the Volunteer Services Program, the full support of community organizations
throughout Los Angeles County have been recruited.
These organizations play a vital role in providing the necessary resources to help
alleviate the overwhelming economic needs of our patient population. Whether providing
handmade blankets for patients or volunteering directly, community organizations have
become the helping hands of volunteer services at LAC+USC Medical Center.
