Volunteering at SMMC

SMMC's Volunteers Make a Difference

Volunteers come from many different backgrounds, are of all ages and each has something special to offer!

The Role of a Volunteer 
More than 200 men and women from all over York County volunteer at SMMC. Whether they help a few hours a month or several days a week, volunteers provide the vital link between the hospital and the people we serve. Some volunteers work in areas where they are in direct contact with patients. Others are involved in "behind the scenes" activities which enhance the care provided by the hospital. Whatever type of service, SMMC is enriched by the volunteer's personal touch! SMMC volunteers are important members of the hospital's health care team.
