A Tradition of Caring
Volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day operations of Colleton Medical Center.
Our mission statement clarifies our purpose: “Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.” As such, those looking to participate in this program must be willing to make a solid commitment and be passionate about serving the people of our community to ensure they receive the best possible care.
Please review the onboarding process below and if this sounds like a journey you are ready to begin, please email the Director of Volunteer Services to request an application.
Volunteers can be seen throughout the hospital performing services such as:
- Assisting and supporting staff with family members and visitors
- Delivering mail to patients
- Assembling patient information packets
- Staffing the Information Desk
- Assisting with clerical duties
The steps below address the onboarding process for becoming a Colleton Medical Center volunteer. All steps in the process will need to be completed so please review carefully. If for some reason you are not able at this time to complete the process then there is no need to proceed. Those looking to volunteer for only a short time or only looking to volunteer until finding a job are discouraged from applying. Volunteering is recommended only for those who can make a more long-term commitment to the volunteer program.
Step 1: Complete the volunteer application and background check consent form
All sections on the application and background check consent form are to be completed in their entirety and returned to the Director of Volunteer Services.

The Human Resources Department will conduct the background check and will notify you that you have cleared and then you will be contacted shortly thereafter by Employee Health.
