Volunteers are essential for creating Westerly Hospital’s helpful and welcoming atmosphere. And when you join our team, you have ample opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives. Volunteers assist in many ways and places, including the Gift Shop, our Courier Service, at reception desks, providing transport services and even knitting comfort blankets for our patients.

Currently, we are in great need of volunteers in the following areas:

  • Information Desk
  • Gift Shop
  • Courier Service
  • Chaplaincy

In addition to your application, all volunteer candidates must interview with the Manager of Volunteer Services, have a criminal background check, be medically cleared by our Occupational Health Department and attend an orientation.
