  • Volunteer Opportunties

  • More than 200 adult and junior volunteers serve wherever there is need for special warmth, cheer and understanding. Volunteers at Newport Hospital make a major contribution by giving time to enhance the quality of patient care and to provide support services for the professional staff. 

    Our volunteer program is at capacity for Summer 2011. The next volunteer information session will be offered on Monday, September 12 from 3:30 to 4:30pm. All are welcome!

    The patients and staff benefit greatly from services volunteers provide. The hospital is appreciative of the selfless service of its volunteers-they really do make a difference.


    Volunteers must:

    • Be 14 years old or older.
    • Serve a minimum of six months/two hours per week.
    • Provide proof of a negative TB test within the past six months, or participate in a TB screening provided by the hospital.
    • Provide proof of immunizations.
    • Attend mandatory hospital-wide safety training.
    • Participate in a criminal background check, if they are 21 years old or older.
