How do I become a Volunteer?

The first step in joining our Hospital family is to call the Volunteer Office (215) 345-2204.

We will send you an application so that you may tell us how you might like to help. When we receive your completed application, we will call you to arrange an interview, as opportunities become available.

Volunteering at Doylestown Hospital

Since its founding in 1923, Doylestown Hospital has had a proud tradition of volunteerism. Volunteers help in our mission by lending the extra hands that truly enhance the quality of patient care.

Volunteers serve in more than 80 different areas in the hospital, including Patient Transport, Doylestown Hospital's Gift Shop, Snack Bar and Information Desks.

The staff of the Volunteer Office does its best to place prospective Volunteers in the most suitable position based on interests and talents, and training is provided. Assignments are made without regard to race, religion or sex. The minimum age requirement for a Doylestown Hospital volunteer is 15, though applications for Teen Volunteers are accepted at age 14. There is NO upper age limit. We are honored to have two (and three) generations of volunteers as part of our hospital family.

The Doylestown Hospital family treasures its Volunteers. Awards are presented in both the Teen and Adult Service Programs to those Volunteers who have reached milestones in their service. A Volunteer Luncheon is also held every spring to honor those who have donated time during the previous year.

Beginning January 2012, any new Volunteers in a Patient Contact area are required to pass a Criminal Record Check, FBI Fingerprint Clearance and Child Abuse Clearance. The hospital covers the cost for the Criminal Record Check and the FBI Fingerprint Clearance; Volunteers pay for the Child Abuse Clearance which is $10.
