Picture Yourself as a Volunteer

Our hospital welcomes volunteers to help serve the growing healthcare needs of our community.

Endless Possibilities

If you have a specific interest or background, there are ways you can choose to contribute your time and talents. In addition to supporting various clinical and non-clinical departments, our volunteer auxiliary manages Lifeline, an in-home emergency monitoring program that provides homebound residents a way to activate emergency response.

Hospital volunteers are also needed to help operate the gift shop. Those with pastoral backgrounds are also essential to the volunteer Chaplain Program.


Volunteer Opportunities

Cumberland Medical Center appreciates and values the assistance of community volunteers to help provide a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere for patients and visitors. Volunteers serve as hospital representatives and may be the first to greet patients or visitors. We are searching for caring, compassionate, dedicated individuals who are willing to commit at least four hours a week in service to their community by volunteering at the medical center campus.
