Volunteer Benefits


Volunteers are eligible for employee discounts at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center pharmacy and cafeterias. With the exception of Dartmouth College Athletics programs, volunteers receive the same discounts at area businesses as DHMC employees.


Volunteers are offered a variety of educational meetings throughout the year and are eligible to participate in many DHMC courses on a space available basis.


Liability insurance is provided to Dartmouth-Hitchcock volunteers while they are performing their duties as outlined in their service description.


Volunteers have access to the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library. To borrow materials, a library privileges form needs to be filled out and signed by a member of the Volunteer Services staff.


Volunteers are awarded pins for hours of service and are recognized annually at a breakfast in the spring and a luncheon in fall. “Gold Stars” are awarded throughout the year to volunteers and staff who serve above and beyond the call of duty. Volunteer emeritus status is awarded to volunteers who have given many years of service when they retire from volunteering.
