Volunteer Opportunities

One of the most important sources of energy and support in our Hospital is our Volunteer Team. They offer their time, energy and smiles.

New England Baptist Hospital Volunteers reflect the same diversity in age, culture and lifestyle found among our patients. Volunteers represent people from all walks of life including professionals, retirees and students.

The Volunteer Services Program makes an effort to match a person's interests with placements within the hospital that will result in a mutually beneficial experience.  Some volunteers enjoy working in direct contact with patients, while others prefer behind-the-scenes projects.
