We appreciate your interest in volunteering with us. Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, the volunteer program at all Novant Health facilities has been temporarily suspended. Therefore, at this time, we are unable to invite volunteers to join our team. Your safety and the safety of our patients, loved ones and team members is our priority.
Potential Adult Volunteers: We invite you to complete an application. By doing so we have your information on file and can contact you when the suspension is lifted and we once again start the onboarding process of new volunteers. We look forward to getting to know you!

The gift of time makes a huge difference in the life of another
If you’re interested in performing valuable community service in a healthcare environment, please consider joining the Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center volunteers who play a vital role helping others.
Our volunteers provide community service appreciated by everyone they encounter as well as the opportunity to enjoy camaraderie with others who share a similar interest in serving people in a healthcare setting.
We are currently seeking volunteers who have excellent customer service skills and are able to commit to at least 100 hours of volunteer service per year, most volunteers provide a minimum of one 4-hour shift per week. Volunteer opportunities encompass most hospital departments, some of the local Novant Health physician practices, the Shallotte Physical Therapy office, and our new Endoscopy Center. In addition to providing a variety of hospital support services, volunteers are very active in fundraising events which help support many hospital departments with patient needs including our Compassionate Clothes Closet.
As a new volunteer you will receive training before you begin to volunteer so no experience is required.
