Volunteers: Join our team

How to Join Our Enthusiastic Volunteer Team:

  1. Complete a volunteer application online.
  2. Schedule a personal interview with the Volunteer Services Coordinator, Laura Lenhardt, by calling (503) 791-7408. The initial interview last about 30 minutes.  During the interview we will discuss volunteer programs and projects that are available at CMH.  Depending on your interests and time availability, we will find a good match for you.
  3. Complete a drug screen, a background check and a tuberculosis skin test, all of which are provided to you without cost.
  4. Attend a 90 minute orientation session.  You will learn about CMH as a community hospital committed to the Planetree philosophy of patient-centered care.  You will also learn more about the role of the CMH volunteers and what you can expect as a team member.

Once you have completed all of the volunteer trainee requirements, you will be ready to go.  We have “on the job” training for the assigned volunteer areas.  Experienced volunteers will work with you while you learn your job.  The average volunteer works four hours a week for at least a three month commitment.  Get involved in a dynamic group of people who are committed to give back to the community they love.  We hope to see you soon!
