Welcome! We are very happy that you are interested in volunteering at New Milford Hospital and believe that you will find it a very rewarding experience!
The first step to becoming a volunteer is registering for a two-hour volunteer orientation and information session.
Applications for adult volunteers are accepted year-round. Please note that background checks are required for Adult volunteers 18 and older. Volunteers must clear the background check in order to be placed on assignment.
Each summer, Volunteer Services welcomes area students, 16 years or older, to our Summer Student Volunteer Program. In addition to the summer program, we offer first-semester and second-semester programs for students who would like to volunteer during the school year.
At Volunteer Orientation, you will learn about:
- What is expected of New Milford Hospital volunteers
- Which medical and clearance forms you will be asked to fill out
- How the application and interview process works
- HIPAA, compliance, infection control and more
