Volunteers are one of Harnett Health’s greatest resources. These community-minded people make a significant contribution towards our goal of providing quality health care to our guests. Volunteers provide services which would otherwise cost thousands of dollars. But more importantly, they add a dimension of compassion and warmth. Our volunteers are recognized as vital members of the healthcare team.
We need you!

Summer Teen Volunteer Program (Junior Volunteers)
This popular program allows teens to contribute in meaningful ways to the patients and staff of Harnett Health while learning about healthcare, health careers, volunteerism and good work habits. The program has a capacity of 15 teen volunteers, ages 14 through 18. These Junior Volunteers work 10 hours per week or more on a regular schedule designed around their availability and hospital needs.
Harnett Health’s Chaplaincy Program fulfills the spiritual needs of patients and their families awaiting news of or dealing with a diagnosis and during times of grief and loss. Our chaplains offer compassionate care and comfort through listening, prayer and scripture readings.
We have one full-time chaplain who is assisted by local volunteer clergy representing a variety of religious backgrounds. All of our chaplains observe the highest professional and ethical standards and will respect your religious preference.
