Volunteer With Us


Make a positive difference

Volunteers from all walks of life brighten our patients' days. Share your compassion and talents at Gouverneur Hospital.

To become a Gouverneur Hospital volunteer, you must be at least 14 years of age and be able to commit to at least one two-hour shift per week for a minimum of eight weeks. You must also successfully complete the Volunteer Services application process. The application process includes an online volunteer application, interview, criminal investigation check, drug screening, physical exam, immunizations if needed, and volunteer orientation. The criminal investigation check, drug screening, physical exam and immunizations are provided at no cost to you.

There are many ways to volunteer at Gouverneur Hospital. Volunteers who are 14-15 years of age are considered Teen Volunteers and are required to provide a work permit and have parental authorization. Teen Volunteers will be placed in a non-patient care assignment. Individuals who are 16 years of age and older can be placed in some patient care areas.
