As Mary Washington Healthcare expands to meet the community's needs, our need for volunteers is greater than ever. Mary Washington Hospital offers several volunteer opportunities:
Mary Washington Auxiliary
The largest volunteer group is the Mary Washington Auxiliary, a dynamic membership organization that provides patient and hospital support, fundraising and community outreach. The Auxiliary has 23 services for which you can volunteer (covering both patient and non-patient areas), including the Gift Shop and the Mary Washington Shoppe. Service opportunities are from Sunday to Saturday with specific time requirements. The Auxiliary's annual dues are $5.00.
Summer Junior Volunteer Program
Geared for high school students ages 14-17, the Junior Volunteer Summer Program provides opportunities to learn about healthcare careers. Many students who are already on a career track for physical therapy or premed college choose to volunteer. We offer two five-week programs, with a minimum requirement of 40 hours of volunteer time.
(Call for an application packet.)
NICU Volunteer Cuddlers
This program uses specially trained volunteers to hold and rock infants, providing comfort measures and stimulation for babies needing extra help in the very beginning of life. In addition to holding and rocking babies, Volunteer Cuddlers will support the Neonatal Intensive Care nursing staff in other day to day tasks, such as answering phones and folding clothes.
