Benefits of Volunteering
Volunteering at Chesapeake Regional Healthcare is rewarding and interesting. Our volunteers know they are making a difference every day and that their efforts are appreciated by our patients and staff. Volunteers are truly a part of our team and are treated as such. Volunteers wear a uniform and ID badge so their official status is immediately recognized by Chesapeake Regional Healthcare staff and patients. Volunteers are included in hospital special events and are given a special reception during National Volunteer Week each year.
In addition to a general orientation, volunteers receive training in their chosen area. Additional special training may be provided in certain areas of the hospital, such as our Surgical Services Department and Patient Information desks.
