Volunteer opportunities


Patient Registration Volunteers: Volunteers staff a desk in our patient registration area to help direct patients through the process.

Pastoral Care Volunteers: People interested in a little more specialized contact with patients have the option of becoming Pastoral Care Volunteers. These volunteers undergo special training to learn to help meet the spiritual needs of patients at NMC.

Information Desk: Volunteers are stationed near the front entrance of the building to help patients and visitors figure out where they’re going. Coming to the hospital can be a confusing time for people, and they often just need a friendly helper to help them find their way.

Veterans Sponsored Valet: Veterans from local Military Service Organizations run a free of charge valet program, assisting patients and visitors around campus. Valet Veterans help with the parking personal vehicles as well as offering transportation in a six-passenger enclosed electric vehicle. The service runs Monday through Friday from 8 am to 3 pm. 

Couriers: Couriers help ensure that important items are delivered from one clinical department to another in a timely manner. For the person who likes to keep moving, this is an excellent opportunity.

Gift Store: Volunteers staff our Gift Store, selling gift items and fresh flowers to visitors and staff.

Surgical Services Volunteers: Volunteers in Surgical Services greet patients and help them through the pre-surgery process.

Meals on Wheels Volunteers: NMC prepares meals for the St. Albans Meals on Wheels program, and volunteers help assemble bags of cold food items for home delivery.

Cobblestone Volunteers: Cobblestone Health Commons houses some NMC departments, as well as outpatient practices. Volunteers stationed in the lobby help direct people to the appropriate areas.

Clerical Positions: Sometimes hospital departments need help with filing, labeling, data entry, and other clerical duties. Volunteers have opportunities for on-going and as-needed clerical positions.

Courtyard Café Volunteers: Our volunteers sell coffee and pastries to visitors and staff during morning & afternoon hours from the hospital cafeteria.

Enosburg PT Clinic: Volunteers greet patients and provide a pair of helping hands to staff.
