You can expect to meet new people, learn new skills and give back to our community when you volunteer at Westfields Hospital & Clinic. We have volunteer positions in a variety of departments, programs and events. There are so many ways to volunteer with us, and each and every one of those ways has a positive impact on the health and well-being of those around you.
To volunteer at Westfields Hospital & Clinic, you must:
After you apply, a volunteer coordinator will contact you to discuss next steps. These might include an interview to explore talents and interests to create the most rewarding volunteer experience for you.
Once you start volunteering, we’ll give you all the training and support you need, and we’ll be by your side to help you thrive in your new role.
Volunteers are an important part of the Westfields Hospital & Clinic team. We couldn’t do what we do without you. Some of the benefits of volunteering with us include:
National Volunteer Appreciation week is April 17th-23rd. In honor of this, we want to thank our volunteers for giving their time and making good happen at Westfields! To show our appreciation, we are sending a card in the mail and will officially recognize our volunteers further in the fall with a luncheon (hopefully in person).
There are many different ways to share your time and talents at Westfields Hospital & Clinic. Whether you have prior experience or are just starting out, we provide training and support for every role, so it’s easy to get started.
Available roles may change depending on current needs. Typical opportunities include:
If you enjoy working with people who are 65+, we’re always looking for volunteers to spend quality time with patients at risk of delirium.
Volunteers in our Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) spend time visiting with patients who might be at a higher risk of experiencing delirium while they are here, based on factors such as their age, surgery/anesthesia, or length of stay.
Volunteers engage patients in activities proven to prevent delirium, including orientation, sensory and therapeutic interactions. Volunteers in this program receive a specialized full-day of training on the program and spend time shadowing other volunteers in this role before being scheduled.
Thanks for your interest in volunteering. We’ve paused accepting volunteer applications, but please watch for updates.
Your voice is important to us. That’s why we formed a Patient and Family Advisory Council to provide feedback on what we do and how we can meet your health care needs in the future. Current and former patients have valuable knowledge and experience to share with other consumers and service providers.
Meetings follow an agenda and discussion guide based on input from the council itself.
