Thank you for your interest in participating in the Volunteer Program for Hunterdon Healthcare. Volunteers are a vital part of Hunterdon Healthcare and make a difference by providing that extra dimension of care and service to our patients, visitors, and staff. Each year, over 500 individuals from Hunterdon, Somerset, Warren Counties and beyond devote their time serving Hunterdon Medical Center and our many satellite locations. Volunteering at any of our facilities provides opportunities to improve and enrich the lives of others. At the same time, service can advance a volunteer’s career goals, support college education and open new doors to develop and pursue interests, skills, and talents. Your willingness to contribute as a volunteer will give you the opportunity to enrich your life with interesting new experiences and relationships.
Volunteer assignments are based on the needs of Hunterdon Healthcare in addition to your interests, skills, and availability. Most volunteer opportunities will be available Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM, with some exceptions. Weekend opportunities are minimal. Adult volunteers, age 18 years and older, must make a dependable commitment of one shift per week for a minimum year term of 100 hours. This time commitment allows you as a volunteer to make a real impact on your assigned area and provides the greatest opportunity for personal satisfaction. We treasure our volunteers and encourage you to stay with us as long as you are available.
The Adult Application Packet will include:
To be considered for acceptance into the Volunteer Program for Hunterdon Healthcare all documents must be returned. Recommendations may be submitted with the application in sealed signed envelopes or mailed, emailed, or faxed directly to Volunteer Resources by the person making the recommendation.
Once an application has been received in its entirety, it will be reviewed to determine the applicant’s eligibility. If the application is accepted, you will be contacted to schedule an interview prior to the next orientation. The interview will help establish if the applicant’s skills, attitude and capabilities fit into Hunterdon Healthcare’s needs.
If selected to become a volunteer, you will be invited to attend a mandatory six-hour orientation. At orientation, you will need to purchase a uniform for $25.00 and we will take your photograph for your identification badge. We will also review Hunterdon Healthcare policies and procedures including, but not limited to HIPAA, confidentiality, safety and security, infection prevention, patient satisfaction sign-in and dress code.
