Help Change Lives

At Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, adult volunteers serve in a wide variety of roles and provide essential assistance to patients, staff and visitors. Many of our volunteers have been with us for many years—and some for decades. We sincerely value and appreciate the selfless contribution of time and talent provided by our volunteers.

Lahey’s volunteers come from different backgrounds and range in age from 14 to 87. What they all have in common is a desire to help others and dedication to the community.
