The staff at Witham Health Services is what makes our hospital so good at caring for the healthcare needs of our community. An important part of our staff is our volunteers. Witham volunteers provide assistance to our professional staff and help us provide the best possible care and experience to our patients and guests. Witham relies on the assistance of many volunteers each year, and new volunteers are always welcome! Volunteering is a great way to foster community involvement while helping others. The volunteer program at Witham has been in existence for nearly 100 years, and volunteers have always made a tremendous impact, giving of their time and talents. Some of the many volunteer service areas include patient transport, guest services, the Waterfall’s Edge Gift Shop, Pavilion Boutique, physician office greeter desks, and more! Volunteers work in four-hour shifts in the morning or afternoon, at least one day per month. A one-day orientation, department-specific training, and annual mandatory education session provides training and review on general hospital procedures and mandatory education requirements.

High School Volunteer Opportunities
At Witham, we know that many of the next generation of caregivers and staff are right here in our community, in the midst of their high school careers. We have programs in place that allow high school students to experience working in a hospital setting, whether they simply want to volunteer and help others or if they are considering a meaningful career in the health care field.
