Every volunteer represents the true spirit of the Nantucket community

Nantucket Cottage Hospital simply wouldn’t be able to provide such great care without our amazing, tireless volunteers. Of course, volunteers anywhere give selflessly to the cause. But because we’re on an island, ours feel their responsibility, and the impact of their commitment, even more. They also know that by helping their hospital they’re supporting their own health care, too.

  • The Hospital Thrift Shop: The Hospital Thrift Shop is managed by a small staff and is always looking for volunteers (men, women, students). There are several opportunities for individuals who are interested in helping out – morning, afternoon and evening shifts are available. The Shop also needs help with picking up donations throughout the year. Men and women with trucks are most welcome!
  • Join our incredible Blue Coat team. Our Blue Coats meet and greet Emergency Department visitors, guide people through the hospital, register patients for surgery and support our administrative staff.

No matter what your skills or experience, we welcome your energy, time and compassion. Volunteering at Nantucket Cottage Hospital is a great and meaningful way to become part of our extended family.
