Reasons for volunteering vary from person to person and may include:
- The desire to help others
- To gain experience in a hospital setting
- Make new friendships
- Use or develop skills
- Obtain references
- Experience to put on your resume
- Opportunity to give back to community
Whatever your reason, Groves Hospital Volunteer Association appreciates your contributions and every effort will be made to ensure your positive experience.
Hospitals offer unique community volunteering opportunities and in the interest of maintaining a safe and comfortable environment for all, volunteers are required to have:
- a Vulnerable Sector Police Records Check
- up-to-date immunizations which includes a two part TB skin test prior to active membership
The Volunteer Association makes all necessary arrangements for both.
