You can volunteer at many places in the Twin Cities. But few let you see your impact first-hand.

Whether you want to explore a health care career, fulfill service-learning hours for school or put a smile on a patient's face, there are countless ways to give your time. And in giving your time, you'll get a lot, too - like new skills, real-life experience and personal fulfillment.

You’ll also get other benefits when you volunteer at Regions Hospital. You can look forward to perks like:

  • Free parking
  • Fun recognition events
  • 10 percent HealthPartners Optical Shop discount
  • 20 percent pharmacy discount on over-the-counter items
