Cartersville Medical Center Invites Individuals to Volunteer

March 01, 2017
Cartersville Medical Center announces opportunities for area individuals to provide much needed and appreciated volunteer services to its patients and medical staff.

Volunteers serve in a variety of roles; CMC works diligently to ensure interests and skill sets are matched when determining which service area a volunteer will be placed.  For example, some volunteers perform duties such as filing, patient transport and Front Desk assistance, while others may deliver newspapers and fresh water to patient rooms, work in the hospital gift shop or provide assistance in the Emergency Department.  Regardless of the duty, collectively, volunteers are one of the single most important groups associated with a hospital. 

Each year, volunteers log countless hours of service and provide resources, such as hospital equipment purchases, facility renovations/upgrades and scholarships, through Auxiliary funds from gift shop proceeds.  While these services are invaluable, the hospital provides benefits in return as a small token of gratitude.  Some of the benefits include:
  • Free meal for each 4 hours of service
  • Free flu vaccination and free TB testing
  • 10% discount in Gift Shop
  • Recognition during National Volunteer Week
  • Eligibility for annual Frist Humanitarian Award
  • Participation in hospital special events/activities
  • Opportunity to wear those great pink jackets! (Red shirts for males).
Volunteer requirements include a commitment of 4 hours per week and attendance at volunteer meetings every two months.

The Cartersville Medical Center Volunteers are affiliated with the Georgia Hospital Auxiliary Association.  For more information about volunteer opportunities, please call 770.387.8172.
