Volunteer With Beloit Health System

VIP's - Volunteers in Partnership with Beloit Health System

Volunteers play a key role in enhancing the patient and visitor experience at Beloit Health System (BHS). If giving back to our community in a healthcare setting interests you, we may have just the opportunity!

The caring people who volunteer with BHS reflect the community we serve - women and men, teens, college students, working professionals and retirees. BHS's volunteers complement our dedicated staff by enhancing the quality of service provided.

Kind words and personalized assistance go a long way in making our guests comfortable. So, if you are interested in being a vital part of BHS's consistent standard of 'Excellence' then volunteering with us in the perfect fit for you!

Our volunteer Services staff will work with you to select a volunteer placement that meets your interests and availability. At the same time, we want to give you a chance to learn new skills and gain a sense of personal satisfaction and accomplishment when you volunteer. Discover how a couple hours each week can make a real difference for our patients, their families and for you! Whether you're satisfied or searching, volunteering makes life more meaningful. Helping others for just a few hours a week can improve your outlook, self-respect and spiritual well-being. And there is a social benefit as well. BHS volunteers enjoy the privilege of working with some of the nicest people in the community. Our employees and volunteers make friendliness and compassion high priorities. Many new friendships and supportive relationships come from serving side by side with others.

Benefits of Volunteering

You Can Make a Difference

You don't need special skills to become a volunteer. Every volunteer offers his or her unique and individual interests, talents and experience in contributing to the volunteer program. Our Volunteer Coordinator will make sure you feel comfortable in your volunteer role. We require and provide all volunteers with training, background checks, TB screenings and annual flu shots.

Be Part of Something Special

Become a part of our outstanding team of volunteers who collectively contribute over 35,000 hours of service annually to our patients, visitors and staff.

The rewards are great!

Each prospective volunteer is interviewed and together with the Volunteer Coordinator, we determine where your interests and skills best match the needs of the health system. We can answer questions you may have, discuss your interest and availability and sign you up for the next Volunteer Training Session. Once you have chosen your service area, you will begin your on-the-job training.
