Change someone's life- become a volunteer!

Haywood Regional Medical Center offers opportunities in various areas throughout the hospital including the information desks, gift shop, library cart, courtesy cart and other areas.

Volunteering means giving of yourself to benefit others. Women and men seeking to serve the hospital and the community are given an opportunity at Haywood Regional Medical Center. Volunteers receive orientation prior to assuming their duties and are expected to serve at least 40 hours per year to be an active member. After orientation, volunteers may select the type of volunteer service that interests them from among many areas from within the hospital. They also participate in community activities, as individuals or as a group.

Benefits go beyond being a part of a team effort that provides quality health care with compassion. Volunteers also receive:
* Discounts in some areas of the health system including the Cafe
* Inclusion in hospital-sponsored activities and celebrations
* Annual flu shot
* Annual appreciation luncheon sponsored by the hospital
