Volunteer Opportunities at Florence
MUSC Health Florence and Marion are supported by more than 50 volunteers ages 18 and up. Typically, volunteers serve one half-day shift per week in an assigned area to match their talents and schedule. Our volunteers' gifts of their time and talents enhance our hospital's service to our patients and their loved ones.
Our Volunteers Include
- Adult Volunteers: A year-round program for adults who are 18+ and have a desire to make a difference
- Volunteer Chaplains: A year round program for chaplains who wish to serve on-call for a minimum of one week per year to minister upon request to hospital patients, loved ones and staff.
- Teen Volunteers: A summer program held in June and July for teens, who are 14 years old by the June start date and have an overall "B" average for the respective school year.
