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.
