Our generous volunteers are a key part of our mission to advance health care in our community. Men and women of all ages give thousands of hours assisting patients, their families and staff members and help in nearly all departments of Lake Norman Regional Medical Center.
While we work with our new volunteers to help them find the most fulfilling opportunity, we also work hard to ensure the position utilizes their talents and fits their schedule. In addition to donating their personal time, volunteers raise funds for hospital projects. In past years, they have donated new furniture for the chapel, wheelchairs, a resuscitation mannequin and an activity table for young visitors.
