The Volunteer Services department is now open!

Our volunteers are often remembered for their caring and selfless acts of kindness and we couldn’t provide the outstanding care that we do without their incredible assistance.

As a volunteer, you will be an ambassador for our Beebe values and are often the first person greeting individuals who arrive at our facilities. There are many opportunities to make a difference and have a lasting, positive impact on our patients and visitors.  Our volunteers are often remembered for their caring and selfless acts of kindness and we couldn’t provide the outstanding care that we do without the amazing assistance we receive from the Beebe volunteers. 

Thank you so much for considering volunteering at Beebe to share your time, talent and compassion. 


Adult Volunteer Program

The Adult Program is for the volunteer who is not a student either in high school or college. There are a number of opportunities for volunteering and we strive to match the assignment to the volunteer. We love the diversity of our volunteer team and rely on the talents that they bring to our organization. Many times we have new volunteers join us since they recently relocated to the Sussex County area and want to become involved with their new community. Volunteering at Beebe is a great way to become familiar with the community healthcare system and meet like-minded individuals who all have the common goal of helping Beebe provide the best possible care for their patients.

Here are the steps to begin your volunteer journey:

  1. Fill out the Beebe Volunteer online application.
  2. Attend a virtual Information Session (email will be sent with available dates and link)
  3. Provide COVID-19 vaccination records and complete online training in the comfort of your home.
  4. Attend an in-person orientation.
  5. Training and start dates will be assigned once an orientation is attended.

Volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, receive an annual flu shot, and get lab work administered by Beebe for TB, MMR and Varicella. Volunteers are also required to fill out State and Federal background checks. These are all provided free of charge at Beebe. Annual refresher training is also required throughout the year to continue volunteering. Volunteers are asked to commit to at least one (1) 4-hour shift a week or a minimum of 75 hours a year.
