Volunteers Services & Opportunities

While Covid has challenged us over the past two years in ways we could not anticipate, we adapted to the constantly fluctuating conditions, which involved pausing our volunteer program. As we enter into 2022, we feel it is an appropriate time to reinstate our volunteer program in a measured, paced manner. We recognize the need for our volunteers to return but will remain cognizant of current conditions and mindful of the safety of everyone involved.

Our first phase will be reviving the Junior Volunteers Program for 2022. We want to connect passionate people with meaningful volunteer opportunities and find new ways that community resources can help us continue to adapt, reset and reconnect.
 
Some of the areas where volunteers help:
Guest Ambassador
Waiting Room 
Hospitality Golf Cart Shuttle
Clerical Services
Guest Services - Patient Escort 
Wheelchair Recovery 
Service Excellence - Bee Helper
 
Volunteer Requirements & Opportunities
All persons interested in volunteering are required to complete a volunteer application, and background check form prior to the volunteer interview. Volunteers accepted into the program will also be required to attend an initial and annual orientation and meet all employee health requirements. Please Note: The COVID-19 vaccine is one of our mandatory immunizations. Since volunteering can only be started two weeks after your final vaccine (2nd dose of Pfizer or Moderna, 1st dose of J&J), obtaining the vaccine as soon as possible enables you to onboard more quickly and easily.
 
Thank you for your interest in exploring volunteer opportunities with Athens Limestone Hospital. Every application is individually reviewed, and we appreciate your patience as we review the applications.
