Make a Difference

FMC Volunteer and patient

Fairfield Medical Center Volunteers are kind and caring individuals who give from the heart to make a difference in the lives of patients and visitors. Volunteers offer their time, talent and dedication throughout the hospital, providing an extra dimension of care to our patients and families. Volunteers are a vital part of Fairfield Medical Center with more than 225 volunteers serving throughout the Center. Our volunteers come from unique backgrounds but are commonly interested in helping others. The care they provide is invaluable to patients and families, and their service aides in reducing the overall cost of healthcare in our community.

We make a difference for everyone by creating exceptional care and experiences from the heart, always.
