At the Nassau Health Care Corporation, volunteers make a real difference because they become an integral part of the NHCC family through a carefully designed program of service that allows them to perform many hours of assistance in carefully selected areas. Every time a volunteer steps through our doors, he or she makes a difference by donating time, energy and talents to the hospital and the patients we serve. We are truly blessed to have an amazing group of volunteers who support our mission by helping to create an exceptional place for health and healing.

Why become a volunteer?
As a volunteer you will play a vital role in helping us serve the health care needs of our community. Volunteering allows you to be of service to the community, neighbors and friends. You will meet new people, develop new skills and interests, and, possibly, explore career opportunities. Our volunteers give that special touch and, whether you have direct patient contact or work “behind the scenes,” every volunteer is an important member of the hospital’s health care team. The opportunities are rewarding, enjoyable and a great way to meet new people.
