Get Involved in Volunteering
AnMed Health offers a variety of volunteer opportunities at both campuses. Our needs are always changing. To see a list of current volunteer opportunities, search our online database or call 864.512.1263 to learn more about getting involved.
The areas our volunteers serve need ongoing assistance, so we ask volunteers to commit to at least six months of regular service. Most volunteers serve for four hours once a week, but this varies depending on the area.
We always consider volunteers' availability and interests when matching people with their assignments. The most important prerequisite is the desire to serve others. Orientation and training are provided for all volunteers.
Featured Volunteer Opportunities
Courtesy Shuttle Driver
Provide shuttle service to and from designated North Campus entrances. Greet guests upon arrival, assist them in and out of shuttle, and establish friendly rapport to determine needs.
"People always have a big smile on their face when we ask them if they would like a ride to their car... whether they accept a ride or not." -Barry Visioli, volunteer, courtesy shuttle
Offer support and show compassion to patients’ loved ones by speaking to them when the patient’s door is open and offering complimentary light refreshments and magazines. Provide conversation, encouragement and other assistance as requested and appropriate.
"Those few moments with a family member waiting for their loved one make an impact." -Becky Cole, volunteer, hospitality cart
Guest Ambassador Desk
Escort patients and visitors to their destination within the North Campus. Accept floral deliveries and provide general assistance to Guest Ambassador staff at information desks.
"It seems to help patients to have someone to talk to. It's good to know you can help them out in some way." -Ron Williford, volunteer, guest services
About the AnMed Health Auxiliary
Volunteers are valued members of the AnMed Health Auxiliary, a 501(c) 3, not-for-profit organization. The Auxiliary's purpose is to support and promote AnMed Health's mission to "passionately blend the art of caring with the science of medicine to optimize the health of our patients, staff and community." The Auxiliary accomplishes this goal through the volunteer hours provided by our members, and through financial support of The AnMed Health Foundation. The Auxiliary raises funds by means of the operation of Something Special and Something Special Too gift shops and various other fund raising events. Most recently, the Auxiliary has provided financial support for the following:
- simulation lab for MUSC AnMed Health Medical Student Education
- new recliners for patient rooms
- patient transport chairs for Outpatient Surgery
- equipment for Pediatric Therapy Works
- college scholarships for students pursuing health care careers
