Volunteer Services

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at one of the Tennova Healthcare facilities. Volunteers serve an important role in our organization — our volunteers are often the first people patients and families encounter. There are a variety of areas where volunteers can serve, and we are always seeking new areas of assistance. If you have a desire to help, we have a place for you.

Opportunities are available for women, men, teenagers (14 years or older) and college students. We offer Junior Volunteer program, which takes place during the summer months, and you may submit an application for this program at any time.

Once you fill out and submit the online volunteer application, we will contact you to set up an interview. This gives us a chance to get to know one another and provide  information about volunteering, the hospital, and our service areas.

If there is an appropriate placement, and the background check has been returned, we will schedule a time for you to begin volunteering. You will have a tb skin test which will be administered through our employee health nurse before you can begin your volunteer duties.

Most volunteers work one day a week for a 4 hour shift. Shifts may be flexible and tailored around your schedule in some service areas. If there is an appropriate placement area available, applicants must meet the following requirements before they can begin their volunteer duties:

  • Pass a background check
  • Take a tuberculosis skin test, administered by our employee health nurse

Most volunteers work a four-hour shift, one day a week. In some service areas, shifts may be flexible and tailored around your schedule. If you would like more information about volunteering, please call us at (865) 545-7687. We’ll be happy to answer your questions.

A little time to care, a little love to share.
