Volunteer Application | Student Volunteer Application
The volunteers who serve at Covenant HealthCare prove that anyone can be a hero just by giving a little bit of themselves to people in need. Volunteers help Covenant fulfill its mission to serve the individuals and the community that depend on them. Like its staff and patients, Covenant volunteers represent all ages, cultures and backgrounds.
Volunteers provide a dimension of care and service to patients as well as empathy for families and visitors -- while supporting staff and physicians in an effort to provide quality care.
Covenant is looking for individuals who want to share their time and talent and help those in need. Covenant volunteers assist in providing a variety of services that benefit patients, family members, visitors, Covenant staff, and members of the medical staff.
The Covenant HealthCare Auxiliary welcomes anyone who would like to join their organized volunteer membership. The Auxiliary was founded to unify and coordinate the special services and fundraising projects of volunteers. Members serve as Covenant HealthCare ambassadors in the community and also provide support for continued improvement in health care.
Applications can be picked up at any Covenant Information Desk or click on the online volunteer application and once completed, submit it directly to a Covenant representative. If you need an application mailed to you, please contact Volunteer Services at 989.583.6048 or by email.
