If you're passionate about community service, care deeply for people and have the time and energy, we'd love to have your help at Carolinas Hospital System. Volunteering opportunities are available in various departments throughout our hospital. Get in touch, and let's talk about how can help each other.
Carolinas Hospital System is supported by more than 70 volunteers ages 18 and up. Typically, volunteers serve one half-day shift per week in an assigned area to match their talents and schedule. Our volunteers' gifts of their time and talents enhance our hospital's service to our patients and their loved ones.
Volunteers help our hospital in many ways. We have an area that's just right for you:
Men and women of all ages and teenagers from 14 to 18 years old can apply to volunteer. Prospective volunteers are placed in work areas compatible with their interests, skills and background.
Volunteer needs vary, and we try to match volunteers with existing areas of need, as well as your experience and talents. We also try to accommodate your personal schedule, including vacations and other personal commitments.
Volunteering at Carolinas Hospital is good for our patients and their families, and good for you! Aside from the benefit of giving time and energy that helps the well-being of our patients and their families -- and makes our community better, -- you also receive tangible benefits. These include a free meal upon completing four hours of service, 24/7 access to the Carolinas Hospital System Employee Fitness Center, health screening opportunities, a volunteer uniform, flu shots and free membership to Senior Circle.
Formed solely for charitable purposes, the Carolinas Volunteer Auxiliary is a nonprofit organization, which raises funds through special sales and other efforts. Donations include scholarships for students pursuing health care careers at Francis Marion University and Florence-Darlington Technical College and for the benefit of the American Heart Association, United Way, Mercy Medicine and many other nonprofit organizations.
