Auxiliary & Volunteering


For more than 50 years, the all-volunteer Bridgeport Hospital Auxiliary has supported the exceptional medical resources at Bridgeport Hospital, connected the hospital to the areas which it serves and created and funded programs and projects that make our children, families and greater community healthier.


Bridgeport Hospital’s Volunteer Program is a rewarding opportunity for men, women and students over the age of 15. Volunteers generally contribute a minimum of four hours a week for at least six months. There are a variety of volunteer roles to fit individual time schedules, abilities and interests. Volunteers may work directly with patients or choose work behind the scenes.

Volunteer Opportunities

Our goal as volunteers is to make the hospital experience as pleasant as possible for patients and their families.

Patient and Family Areas:

  • Volunteer escorts – transport patients to and from procedure areas as well as discharges
  • Patient Care Assistant

Administrative Assistance:

  • Behind the scenes fulfilling clerical needs for various departments.


  • Staff the Gift Shop

The first step to volunteering is to obtain the necessary volunteer application forms. These forms are available by contacting the Volunteer Services Office at 203-384-3330. We will review the information you provided, and if we feel that there is a position open that you could fill, we will contact you to set up an interview.
