Volunteer Services

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. YNHH Volunteer Services in conjunction with the department of Infection Prevention and Senior Leadership has formatted a strategic phased approach to accepting volunteers back into the hospital. The first phase will consist of individuals who were actively volunteering prior to the pandemic. During this phase we will accept applications for new volunteers in preparation for expanding our volunteer team.

Previous applicants: If you applied during COVID and are still interested, please do not re-apply. Please email us to confirm that your application is still on file at [email protected].

To ensure the safety and well-being of our patients, communities we serve, staff and volunteers we are requiring all volunteers be vaccinated.

We encourage you to apply today and we ask for your understanding and patience as we enthusiastically look to open our doors to new volunteers.
