Fran Tosh“I may only be one person, but I can be one person who makes a difference” ~ anonymous

Volunteering is something I have done throughout my life and want to continue to do. After retiring and making St. Tammany my new home several years ago I searched for fulfilling ways that I could volunteer and feel connected to the community, meet new friends, and share some of my skills.

Lakeview Hospital stood out to me. Since my first day volunteering in the Ducks Nest Gift Shop I knew I made the right decision to be here. Not only is Lakeview a rewarding and fulfilling place to be, but also it is fun! Everyone is welcoming and respectful whether it be with a smile, a “hello” or just a friendly nod.

All of us who volunteer at Lakeview are not here because we must be but because we can be! We are rewarded knowing we make a difference in our community. Lakeview Regional maintains its reputation for giving world class service and that is no small part due to its volunteers and their enthusiasm and generosity. Our volunteers are an integral part of the Lakeview family and have an important role in helping to provide the best in quality care and service.

Volunteers are needed throughout the hospital to lend a helping hand, a listening ear or offer support to those in need. Our volunteers dedicate their time, energy, skills, and knowledge to make a difference in various departments. We ask our volunteers to work a minimum of four hours a week and welcome those willing to give more.

To ensure our volunteers safety as well as our patients’ we provide a hospital orientation and training session and a background check on all prospective volunteers is required.

Our Volunteer Auxiliary raises funds to support local charities. We can accomplish this goal through sales in the Duck’s Nest and various fundraisers though out the year.

If you would like to join us please contact our volunteer manager at 985.867.4166 or apply online. You will receive an application and you will be on the road to being a world class volunteer here at Lakeview Hospital .
