Renown volunteers give much more than just time – they truly make a difference for the many lives they touch.

Volunteer opportunities are available at several Renown locations and we’re always looking for new volunteers to help our cause.

Volunteer assignments are based on interest, skills and abilities. Many volunteers comfort patients, develop friendships and help out at Renown employee events, such as the Ice Cream Social and the Health Fair.

Other opportunities include:

  • Visiting with patients and circulating books, magazines, videos, playing cards and puzzles to patients and waiting areas
  • Providing a warm welcome and assisting as patients are discharged
  • Delivering email, mail and flowers to patients and staff, as well as medical charts, equipment and supplies within the hospital
  • Assisting staff and patients with special tasks
  • Assisting staff with clerical duties
  • Volunteer outside of the hospital in Hospice Care or Palliative Care by contacting 775-982-2816.

Specialized assignments are also available:

  • Assisting with general volunteer responsibilities in the hospital's emergency room
  • Assisting the hospital's Child Life Specialists with therapeutic and recreational activities for pediatric patients
  • Assisting at Information and Reception Desks

Volunteers must be 18 years of age and older. Some prerequisites apply in various settings. Initial screenings provided may include fingerprints, health clearance, interviews, reference checks and more.

The Volunteer Resources office at Renown is ready to assist each volunteer with understanding and completing these requirements.
