LAKEPORT, Calif. – Sutter Lakeside Hospital is recruiting volunteers to serve as the face of the front desk in the hospital lobby, as well as serve in other roles throughout the hospital.

Sutter Lakeside Hospital’s volunteer Auxiliary has been serving the community through their work with the organization since 1961.

Historically, volunteers have managed the hospital gift shop, helped check patients in for surgery, and helped with clerical work in the Emergency Department and Family Birth Center.

Volunteering at the front desk is a new opportunity for members of the Auxiliary.

“We’re excited to involve volunteers in serving as the face of the hospital when patients walk through our doors,” says Dan Peterson, chief administrative officer. “It’s fitting that community members would serve in this role, as we are such a community-oriented organization.”

Duties will include greeting patients, checking in visitors, helping patients navigate the building, answering questions and warmly welcoming all who enter.

No computer work is necessary and training will be provided.

Two four-hour shifts are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Applications are also accepted for work in the gift shop, at the surgery center and in the emergency department.

Applicants must be over the age of 18; a minimum one year commitment is required.

Interested applicants should contact Morgen Jarus at 707-262-5121 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
