The Volunteer Services Department at BMC is dedicated to helping BMC fulfill its mission of providing consistently excellent and accessible health services to all in need of care, regardless of status or ability to pay. Our volunteers continue to grow and support staff, patients and families.

Volunteers assist the BMC community with services that support the hospital’s mission while providing an enriching experience for the volunteer.

Volunteer Services’ main goal is to integrate and assimilate volunteers throughout the hospital where they have the greatest impact to BMC's patients and staff. In doing this, Volunteer Services is also devoted to providing a meaningful experience for the volunteer that aligns with the hospital’s mission and the volunteer’s goals and desires to give back to the community.

The ideal volunteer is able to commit to one consistent shift for longer than the 4 month minimum requirement. He/She is eager to volunteer wherever help is needed and has a pleasant demeanor throughout the process. He/She has a genuine interest in serving the BMC community and gains valuable experience from volunteering.
