Make a Difference by Volunteering!
At Jersey Community Hospital, our volunteers add that special touch. The Volunteer Department at Jersey Community Hospital began in 1979, shortly after the hospital moved to its new campus on the southwest corner of Jerseyville. It was founded to supplement the activities of paid staff and to provide helping hands and caring that money cannot buy.
