Volunteer at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital

A thriving spirit of support

nwch giftshopThe spirit of volunteerism and giving is a long-standing tradition in our community. We are privileged to be assisted every day by dedicated volunteers who play a vital role in working directly with our patients as well as behind the scenes.

No healthcare facility can afford to operate without the support of volunteers. Newark-Wayne Community Hospital and DeMay Living Center volunteers are instrumental in the services provided by these facilities.  In return, volunteers enjoy the opportunity to meet new people, to keep active, to reap the health benefits of volunteering and - perhaps most gratifying - to experience the personal satisfaction that comes from helping others.

"This is a very busy place, and I love it. I really enjoy everything that I'm involved with and it feels good knowing that I'm helping both the people I work with and the patients."

~ Gerald Peelen, long-time volunteer for NWCH

Volunteers dedicate thousands of hours each year to make the hospital and living center a better place for patients and staff.
