Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, CAMC has suspended volunteer services. Because many of our volunteers fall into a higher-risk category, we have taken this step to protect their health. Applications are being accepted for those interested in joining and the information will be processed once volunteer services resume. Thank you for your interest.
As Charleston Area Medical Center volunteers, our mission is to serve as support for patients, families and hospital staff, and to provide a caring, comforting and courteous environment.
Volunteers at CAMC bring their unique personalities and skills to our hospital. They range in age from 15 to 101. Our ranks are made up of men and women; students and retirees; homemakers and business people. Last year, 300 volunteers contributed over 35,000 hours to our hospitals, Cancer Center and Hospitality House.
We are looking for volunteers who exemplify CAMC's core values of respect, integrity, stewardship, quality, service with compassion and safety. These volunteers will help us with our mission of "striving to provide the best health care to every patient, every day."

We will begin accepting applications for Junior Volunteers on January 1, 2020 and the postmark deadline is April 1, 2020.
