Process

  • After receipt of your completed application, we will call you and schedule an interview
  • At the interview, we will discuss with you your interests, motivations for volunteering and availability
  • You will be given a packet of documents to read and forms to complete and return to us, including:
    • Background Check
    • Reference Letters (two references required)
    • Volunteer Expectations and Commitment Agreement
    • Confidentiality and Volunteer Agreement
    • Dress Code Policy
  • You will be scheduled with our Employee Health office to be screened for immunizations and receive two (2) tuberculosis tests. Read about the vaccinations on this information sheet. The required vaccinations and this document will be explained during the interview.
  • Upon our receipt of all your completed and signed documents and forms and clearances, we will conduct an orientation and test
  • At the successful conclusion of the application process, you will be authorized to receive an employee Photo Identification Badge
  • Upon receipt of your badge, you will be introduced to your volunteer assignment and begin your volunteer service

These tasks typically take two to three months to complete, so there will be a time period in between the interview and when our applicants can actually begin to volunteer in the hospital. Thank you for your patience so we can protect our patients!
