Inova Alexandria Hospital’s spiritual care volunteer program is inviting people of all faith traditions to join their team to help provide spiritual and emotional support to patients and family members. Lay or ordained individuals are welcome to apply. We are seeking compassionate, emotionally healthy individuals who are open to working with our diverse population of patients, honoring their faith and providing spiritual care that is appropriate to their needs. We never allow witnessing, proselytizing or attempts to convert patients or family members.
· One four-hour shift per week.
· One overnight on-call shift per month (8pm to 8am. This can be done from home – only coming in if needed)
· Reasonably good comfort level using computers.
· All volunteers need to meet general hospital requirements, which includes being fully vaccinated for Covid 19 (plus boosters)
A thorough orientation and training is provided, along with regular ongoing education opportunities. Be assured that your safety and wellbeing are paramount, with infection prevention training and certain restrictions in place. We function in ways that maximize your wellbeing and safety.
