Volunteer at Norwalk Hospital

Volunteers are a key member of the Norwalk Hospital care team. From patient transport and bedside visits to behind-the-scenes administrative support, volunteers provide a vital service for our patients and their families, staff and community.

  • Volunteer Opportunities    

    We welcome caring individuals to join our team. Matching the right volunteer to the right position is essential to the success of our program.

     

    To ensure a successful volunteer experience, we make an effort to find or create volunteer opportunities that match your interests. Volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to:

    • Emergency Department: Work closely with the Emergency Department leadership and staff to provide support services to staff, patients and their families.
    • Music Therapy: Volunteers trained in the clinical use of music to accomplish individualized goals such as reducing stress, improving mood and self-expression.
    • Volunteer Transport: Assist staff and families in various departments to help transport patients throughout clinical areas of the hospital. Transport volunteers may also wheel discharged patients from their rooms to patient pickup areas.
    • Gift Shop: Greet and assist customers and staff within our gift shop.  Our gift shop volunteers also work with staff to help keep the store maintained and organized.  Volunteers also perform point of sale transactions, while providing excellent customer service.
    • Patient Care Areas: Assist a variety of departments with delivering kind, compassionate care to our patients, guests and staff.
    • Clerical Support: Assist office staff across several departments within the hospital.. These volunteers help staff with clerical duties including filing, copying and faxing, answering phones, data entry, and greeting visitors.
    • Art and Hospitality Cart: Our hospitality and art cart volunteers are vital in bringing genuine joy to our patients. Volunteers assist by bringing art supplies and projects to patients within different departments.
    • Patient to Patient, Family to Family Emotional Support Volunteer: Peer-to-peer supporters are people who have “been there.” They are empathetic and compassionate, working with those who have similar life circumstances to their own. Although the experience of one person can never be exactly the same experience as another, having someone to relate to can be incredibly supportive and reassuring. A peer-to-peer supporter, using the appropriate skills, can help an individual navigate their health journey from a physical, emotional and spiritual perspective.
    • Pet Therapy: This program welcomes volunteers whose dogs are qualified with an approved organization (Good Dog Foundation, Therapy Dogs International and Pet Partners) to engage with patients and staff throughout the hospital. Volunteers must be 18 years or older to participate and able to commit to at least three visits per month.
  • How to Become a Volunteer
