The Six-Step Application Process
To become a volunteer at Woodstock Hospital you must first complete the application process. Once the following steps are complete, we will work together on selecting a placement and arrange training for you.
Step 1: Submit the Volunteer Application Package Consisting of
Volunteer Services screens all application packages. If there are not any vacancies that match your availability, interests and abilities, you will be notified in writing.
Step 3: Interview
Volunteer Services will set up an interview with the most suitable candidates whom we feel have a good fit within the organization and a placement that will benefit both parties.
Step 4: Pre-Placement Health Review
A health screening is mandatory for all applicants. Following acceptance, proof of immunizations and a two-step T.B. skin test is required. You will receive a health clearance checklist outlining what is needed.
Please note that there is an out-of-pocket expense for the T.B. test. Fees range from approximately $30-$90 depending on where you go for the T.B. test.
Step 5: Orientation
Following the interview, you will receive an invitation to attend the next scheduled orientation. Here you will learn about hospital policies, procedures, information about safety and security, infection control, confidentiality and privacy. Training within your role will be scheduled with an experienced volunteer or a staff member after the general orientation.
