HRC endeavors to develop volunteer services by engaging community members to provide care to patients and operational support to various departments in the Hospital, so as to promote the spirit of mutual help and build up a harmonious community.

People aged 15 or over are welcome to join our volunteer services. The first group of hospital volunteers started service in June 2001. HRC organizes volunteer recruitment and training periodically to equip community members to become hospital volunteers. For enquiries, please contact us at 2208 1259.
