Care New England welcomes individuals who want to support the work taking place across our system to create a community of healthier people. You will have the opportunity to apply to the Care new England hospitals and/or programs of your choice when you complete your Volunteer Application.

Volunteers can be:

  • students or adults exploring careers in a healthcare setting.
  • working or retired people looking to expand their network of experiences.
  • someone wanting to meet new people or add a new dimension of meaning to their days.


Volunteers might work with staff supporting a department role that serves our patient care mission. Others work more independently, providing direction or support in navigating our facilities and services.

Our volunteers make an impression on our patients, their families and visitors. They see members of the community making an effort to help them- directly or indirectly. They know they are in an environment where caring is extended throughout.

In turn, dedicated volunteers get satisfaction from giving back to the community or to a hospital where they or a loved one were provided care. They have an opportunity to make a difference to the patient and family experience.

If you have as little as one 4 hour block of time to set aside each week to come to the hospital, look at the information that follows to learn how you might get involved as a Care New England Volunteer.
