Volunteers have a special place in our hospital family.

They are the friendly smile, the helping hand, the compassionate listener for our patients and team members.

Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital is truly fortunate to have more than 300 community members volunteering to support every aspect of our operation, from welcoming visitors, to working in the gift shop, to supporting patients and families. 

We invite you to check out the links below to learn more about the types of volunteer roles we have available. There's something for everyone!

To start the process, complete our brief application to let us know your interests and skills. We'll evaluate our current hospital needs and find a place for you. We'll also prepare you for your new role with a thorough hospital orientation.

All it takes is a warm smile and a few hours a week to make a difference in someone's life. Thank you for sharing your love with our community.
