Volunteer Services

Volunteers are a vital part of the Cary Medical Center family. This special group of people gives freely of their time and talents to provide services that significantly add to our overall quality of healthcare. At Cary Medical Center, we have over 60 active volunteers who help patients and their families, visitors, staff, and our community by performing tasks that complement or enhance existing services. Nearly every department is assisted in some way by at least one volunteer. Additionally, volunteers play an important role in many of our community events and special projects. We are so proud of our volunteers and their many contributions that help make Cary Medical Center an award winning healthcare organization.

Would you like to join our volunteer team? Just give us a call at 498-1380. Whether you’re interested in a regularly scheduled position or on an as-needed basis, we’d love to hear from you about volunteering at Cary Medical Center.  Please contact us and we would be happy to discuss opportunities currently available and forward an application to you.  Remember, even if you only have a few hours per month your services are welcome.

In addition to the personal satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that many of our volunteers have expressed the feel, there are several other benefits to volunteering at Cary Medical Center.

  2. The Cary Physical Therapy folks were friendly and welcoming. They introduced themselves and called me by my first name which made me feel like they thought of me as a person and not just another patien. We set goals and met them - they taught how to walk correctly with a cane which I found helpful. My month at Cary P.T. was an enjoyable experience. I'd recommend it to anyone.
