Volunteering

Osborne Park Hospital (OPH) volunteers, also known as The Friends of Osborne Park Hospital, complement the care provided by Hospital staff by generously giving their time to enhance the comfort and well-being of patients and their loved ones. They also run the Hospital café (Café Osborne) and kiosk (K Block) and provide administrative support to Hospital staff.

Our volunteers are valued members of the team who support our patients and their families and friends, often through difficult times.

The Friends of Osborne Park Hospital (OPH) is a valuable independent volunteer group that has supported the Hospital for over 40 years. More than 100 volunteers give their time for the benefit of our patients, visitors and staff.
