Adult Volunteers

We appreciate your interest in exploring volunteer opportunities with Northeast Georgia Health System!

Volunteering within the hospital, long term care facilities, medical plazas, Hospice, Lifeline, or with special events can be a rewarding experience for compassionate, empathic and positive individuals. Because of the nature of the care delivered to patients, volunteers are carefully screened and placed into appropriate assignments, and each volunteer must adhere to standard policies and procedures.  It is very important for volunteers to be dependable and prompt with commitments.

The screening process includes

  • Volunteer Application (Download Here)
  • Volunteer Interview
  • Criminal Background Check
  • Health and Immunization Requirements

This process which requires time is designed to ensure the safety and well being of patients and family members, as well as the success of the volunteer program.

Before you complete the application

Before completing the volunteer application, please carefully review the NGHS Volunteer Services Handbook and NGHS Corporate Compliance Guidelines.

To apply, please complete the application and call the Volunteer Services Office, 770-219-1830 to schedule an interview.
