How Do I Become A Volunteer?

The first step in joining our volunteer 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

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.

Volunteer Clearances

All volunteers must pass a PA State Police Criminal Record Clearance. For most Volunteer programs, this clearance is completed by the director of Volunteer Services as part of the interview process. Volunteers applying for the Animal Assisted Activity Program, the Pre-Med Program or the College Student Summer Program are required to complete and submit the PA State Police Criminal Record Clearance with their application. There is no charge to the volunteer for the PA State Police Clearance.

Volunteers who have contact with children are required by PA State Law (Act 153) to obtain FBI Fingerprint Clearance and Child Abuse Clearance. There is no charge to the volunteer for the Child Abuse Clearance; there is a charge for the FBI Fingerprint Clearance.
