ChristianaCare

All visitors are required to wear masks.

For COVID-19 safety, all visitors to ChristianaCare facilities and services are required to wear masks. This includes visitors who are vaccinated. Please read our visitor guidelines before arrival.

Masks required at outpatient locations; visitors and support persons limited

All visitors at outpatient locations must be masked in alignment with the masking guidelines on our visitation policy page here. Patients at ChristianaCare’s outpatient services are advised to come to their appointments alone unless a support person is absolutely needed. If a support person is needed, such as a parent, guardian or spokesperson, we highly encourage that the support person be vaccinated. Outpatient practices are not requiring vaccination or a negative COVID test for visitors at this time.

All hospital visitors required to be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test.

  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
  • Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.
  • All visitors and surgical support people must show proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test within the prior 72 hours.

Our Volunteers

College Volunteer Program

You must be currently enrolled in a post high school academic program to apply for the College Volunteer program.

The Volunteer Program at ChristianaCare offers a variety of ways for individuals to make a difference through community service. We strive to provide a valuable experience for each individual. Our volunteers are a vital resource, bringing valuable talent and perspective, and a shared sense of commitment that benefits our patients. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to enrich the lives of our patients and families. Volunteers acquire new and different skill sets and bring a vast wealth of knowledge and life experience. Some volunteers work directly with patients and families, while others prefer to work in a variety of interesting and challenging settings that do not involve direct patient care.

Our program is organized by semesters and volunteers are required to complete a minimum of 50 hours of service per semester.

To safeguard from coronavirus COVID-19, ChristianaCare is postponing recruitment of volunteers until further notice. Please continue to monitor this website for future updates.

There are many ways and places to volunteer at ChristianaCare. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities by reviewing our Volunteer Directory. When you meet with a volunteer coordinator, you may discuss these options to see if they are the right fit for you.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the application process, please contact Volunteer Services via e-mail or by calling 302-733-1284, option #4. We look forward to working with you!
