What types of volunteer assignments are available?
Volunteers are assigned permanent or substitute shifts as identified between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. During that time frame, volunteers are normally assigned to work a four, five, or six-hour shift. Sometimes it is difficult for volunteers to choose an assignment. Before being assigned to a specific area, volunteers may ask to shadow to determine if this would be an area of interest to them.
How will I stay informed of other volunteer happenings?
A Volunteer Services newsletter will be provided to all volunteers as well as a monthly volunteer schedule. Signatures, the hospital newsletter, is also provided to the volunteers. Volunteers will receive a calendar of scheduled events.
