Volunteer at Delnor
Volunteers Make a Difference
Last year volunteers contributed more than 60,000 hours to Delnor, the equivalent of 28 full-time employees. Volunteers are part of the Delnor family and help make Delnor a warm and friendly hospital.
There are opportunities for everyone to help. Volunteers assist in nearly every area of the hospital. Assignments are based on your availability, interests and skills. Volunteer opportunities may include:
Flower and mail delivery
Surgery waiting room
ER waiting room
And Much, Much More!
Our program operates seven days a week with daytime and evening hours. Volunteer hours are tailored to meet your individual schedule. All volunteers are required to attend a three hour volunteer orientation.
The goal of our volunteer program is to reduce stress for patients and their family members enabling them to relax, therefore making their stay at Delnor a positive one. Volunteers must be comfortable with patients/families, sensitive to their needs and possess interpersonal skills. In order to ensure the safety of our patients, visitors, staff and volunteers all adult volunteers will be asked to authorize a criminal background check, (social security number is required). This could also include possible finger printing prior to volunteering at Delnor.
All volunteers are required to have TB testing which will be provided free of charge. We also ask that each volunteer supply proof of immunization for MMR and Varicella, information will be provided at orientation. Should you have specific clinical questions prior to the orientation please contact our occupational health department at (630) 208-4549.
