Weems Hospital Auxiliary

Volunteers assist and support the mission and efforts of the hospital by helping staff members, patients and visitors during their time at Weems Memorial. Our patients and staff members enjoy interacting with vounteers.  Weems welcomes individuals who are looking to make a difference in the lives of others. If you have a particular talent or area in which you would like to vounteer, please share your ideas with our staff.  To protect the safety and privacy of our employees, patients and visitors; vounteers are screened as rigorously as employees.  Individuals must go through volunteer orientation as well as pass a drug screen and background check.

Junior Volunteers

High school students wishing to volunteer will find an excellent venue in their local hospital.  Selection of Junior Volunteers is based on a letter of recommendation, previous community service, availability and grade point average.  Students may serve up to 12 hours maximum per week. Weems Memorial Hospital is an approved community service site for many scholarships.

Weems Chaplains Association

Weems Hospital respects a patient's desire for pastoral care and wants to provide access to that care for the patient and his or her family. In 2008, a volunteer Chaplains Association was established to assure a respectful response to any patient who desires spiritual services, day or night. Participating Clergy possess the pastoral care education and experience recommended by their religious denomination. If you are interested in joining the Chaplains Association, please call Ministers Thomas and Valentina Webb at (850) 653-9442.
