Cape Cod Hospital Volunteering
Make a difference in the lives of our patients.
Like the original group of concerned citizens who began our community hospital in 1919, our volunteers continue a tradition that binds us together as a family. In addition to the sense of accomplishment and personal gratification that volunteering at Cape Cod Hospital provides, there is also the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people, contribute to the community, and to learn about current health care issues.
The Volunteer department is dedicated to providing the highest quality of service and support. We respect the dignity, individuality, and diversity of our patients, visitors, and colleagues. We are committed to providing compassionate, well-trained and resourceful individuals who offer quality assistance and customer service.
The following are the requirements needed for volunteering:
- Applicants must be at least 15 years of age.
- Able to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours a week.
- Complete application and schedule an interview with the Manager of Volunteer Services.
Once a person is accepted into the program:
- Attend hospital orientation
- Provide a physician's certification that you are able to perform the assigned duties
- Have two tuberculosis skin tests, given by our Employee Health Office
- Have a background check (CORI)
Student Volunteer Programs
Students, 15-17 years of age, are encouraged to volunteer at Cape Cod Hospital. Volunteering at a hospital is most beneficial for those considering a career in healthcare.
The summer months offer the best opportunity for teenagers to become involved. Not only can one offer volunteer service, but also a student will be able to spend observation time in various areas.
During the school year there is the possibility that you could volunteer during the school day and receive credit for your volunteer time. This is done through the “School to Career” initiative. Check to see if your high school is involved in this program.
As a student volunteer, you could work with departments such as nursing, radiology, pathology, food and nutrition, and clerical areas.
Deadline to apply for summer student volunteers is May 1st.
All placement choices depend on availability.
