Volunteering with Alberta Health Services (AHS) is a unique opportunity to support Patient and Family Centred Care.

 

AHS volunteers are individuals looking for a rewarding opportunity to share not only their time but provide meaningful support to patients and their families through a variety of roles.  Volunteers are a vital link in the important work of Alberta Health Services.
