Due to the overwhelming surge in COVID-19 cases and the strain it has placed on health care capacity in the communities we serve, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has activated crisis standards of care statewide. We are open and available to see patients, but you may experience delays at our ERs, hospitals, and clinics. We appreciate your patience. Access more info on COVID testing, vaccination, visitor policy, hospitalization data, and FAQs.

If you want to truly make a difference in people’s lives, there’s no better volunteer opportunity than at St. Luke’s. 

We’re very fortunate to have many wonderful people interested in volunteering at St. Luke's — sometimes more than we have service openings for! If we have an opening that matches your availability and interests, we may call you for an interview. In the meantime, we keep applications on file for four months. Please re-apply if you have not heard from a member of our volunteer services team and are still interested in serving at St. Luke's.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways to share your time and skills at St. Luke’s, such as helping families in the surgery or critical care waiting rooms, working in the gift shop, engaging with kids in the Children’s Hospital playroom, or making cuddly teddy bears for our young patients.

The majority of our volunteer needs are Monday through Friday during normal work hours. We’ll make every effort to place you according to your and our needs, interests, and expectations.

A Few Things to Keep in Mind

The volunteer role is extremely important at St. Luke’s. As a representative of our organization, you have an impact on our patients and their experience with us. 

  • Volunteering is not "job shadowing."
  • We do not offer internships through our volunteer program.
  • We do not create positions for your personal/professional goals. We have specific needs specified by departments that we assist in filling.
  • No patient care is involved in volunteering at St. Luke's.
  • Before applying, please ask yourself, "Am I applying because I have a sincere volunteer spirit?" and "Can I consistently commit to one shift every week?"

Adult volunteers are placed in a variety of service areas, including the Gift Shop, visitor support, surgery waiting area, patient safety, and the Children's Hospital.
