Volunteers have been a great force behind the Medical Center since the early 1900’s. Volunteers from the community were the ones who enabled the hospital to be self-sufficient, by canning and preserving fruits and vegetables grown on the land surrounding the grounds of the hospital.

A formal volunteer group was organized at the hospital in 1958; known as the “Sunshine Ladies”, the volunteers wore yellow and white uniforms as a symbol of the light they brought into the patients’ lives.

Today we have men, women and teen volunteers at ARMC. Although much has changed at the hospital over the years, the volunteers continue to be a driving force that enhances the patient experience and quality of care at Arrowhead.
