Oconee Regional Medical Center Needs You!

Who are ORMC volunteers? They are people who donate their time, skills and their talents to support our community hospital. They lend a hand wherever help is needed, from staffing the Information Desk in the lobby to working in The Pink Bow Gift Shop.

Volunteers are people who make a difference because of the role they play in lending support to our hospital community. Volunteers set an example for all of us, working for the satisfaction of helping others.

As a volunteer at Oconee Regional, you’ll enjoy many rewards. You will feel a sense of accomplishment, learn new skills, meet new people, make new friends and make an invaluable contribution to your community.

Volunteers have the opportunity to match their skills and interests with meaningful assignments. As part of the health care team, volunteers broaden and diversify staff efforts to meet the hospital’s goal of providing comprehensive health care. There are many areas in which volunteer help is needed and scheduling is very flexible.

For more information about being a Volunteer at Oconee Regional please read through the rest of this webpage. If you like what you’ve read then please complete an online volunteer application. You will then be contacted to schedule an interview for volunteering, based on availablility.
