Volunteers come from all walks of life. They are homemakers, teenagers, career professionals, retirees, and employees. They share a common purpose to help others by giving of themselves.
Both adult and teen volunteers provide a valuable service to hospitals and the community by bringing a smile to a patient, by offering a helping hand and by sharing hope with anxious families.
Piedmont Columbus Regional offers numerous volunteer opportunities, including in the Emergency and Trauma Center at Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown Campus, the Children’s Hospital at Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown Campus, the John B. Amos Cancer Center and Piedmont Columbus Regional Northside Campus.
For 6 weeks during the summer, youths from ages 14-18 may participate in the Columbus Regional Auxiliary Youth Volunteer program. Because their duties require the same dedication and commitment as adult volunteers, these youth volunteers are carefully selected. Applications are available online and in the Auxiliary office from January to April 1. April 1 is the deadline for applications.
The program, which runs from June to August, is designed for responsible, mature teens who want to help others or explore a health career.
For more information about volunteer opportunities at Piedmont Columbus Regional, contact Molly McVey, Manager of Volunteer Services, at (706) 571-1480 or email@example.com.
Are you In the Pink?
The Columbus Regional Auxiliary stays busy! In our last fiscal year, 342 volunteers gave 30,798 hours to Piedmont Columbus Regional. That’s a time donation equaling $715,000! Volunteers made over 7,000 individual visits to our campuses at Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown Campus, Piedmont Columbus Regional Northside Campus, and John B. Amos Cancer Center. 7,000 times our volunteers came on campus and improved the lives of everyone with whom they came in contact! From cuddling babies in the NICU and delivering birth certificates to new mothers to helping patients check in at our Surgery Center and volunteering behind the scenes in Radiology, our volunteers make a difference in the lives of our patients, their family members, and our employees.
We have 3 different programs to meet your volunteering needs! No matter what your age or level of commitment, we have something for you. Our Summer Youth Program (for ages 14-18), our TAPS program (college aged and military members and family members), and the Auxiliary (long-term commitment) are ready to welcome you with open arms into the wonderful world of volunteering!
