The Vail Health Volunteer Corps is committed to making a difference in our community by caring for those who visit our facilities. A volunteer's dedication to our patients' and guests' well-being helps make their time with us a little easier.

Mission statement: Elevating health across our mountain communities.

Vision statement: Provide a meaningful volunteer experience and be recognized as the most rewarding volunteer opportunity in our communities.
History: The Vail Health Volunteer Corps was founded by Paula Wahle in 1979 and has grown from 13 to more than 100 members. Although the Volunteer Corps initially focused their efforts on fundraising for the hospital, we have since become instrumental in assisting patients, guests and staff at Vail Health Hospital, Shaw Cancer Center, and Beaver Creek Medical Center on a daily basis. Each year, they donate more than 5,000 service hours and $60,000 to Vail Health.
