Without the dedicated medical and administrative volunteers who staff the Clinic we would not be able to continue serving our patients. We invite you to become part of the phenomenal Chesapeake Care community of volunteers.

Join the professional licensed volunteers including physicians, dentists, specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, hygienists, pharmacists, nurses and medical assistants.

We also have volunteer opportunities for administrative and clerical support. Other volunteers maintain the building and grounds, cook and deliver meals to the Clinic, conduct specific projects, shop for supplies, complete mailings and more.

At times it is necessary to refer patients to specialists outside of the Clinic. Our volunteer professionals connect to a strong network of caregivers who provide specialized services at no cost. The participation of Chesapeake Regional Medical Center is a critical component of our program as are partnerships with many other healthcare facilities and community agencies.

"I really do enjoy volunteering because I know that it's for the greater good of the people.  Just knowing that I could help is enought for me."

"I love the work I do here. I encourage other nurses to volunteer their time, and its great knowing that we can all do our part in giving back to the community."

Meals

We are also in need of volunteers to be responsible for preparing/bringing lunch or dinner for our volunteers. This can be done on a bi-weekly or monthly basis.

Specialists

Many of our specialists prefer to see patients in their own office. We have a network of specialists that see patients in this way, but are always in need of more to offer our patients a comprehensive level of care.

 

Under HIPPA regulations, all volunteers
must be 18 years of age or older.
