Transition of care
Caring for our patients doesn't end at discharge. Volunteers call all discharged patients to ask about their experience and check to see how they are feeling and if they have any questions about their discharge instructions. If a patient has questions or concerns, we connect them with a nurse or social worker to ensure their healthcare needs are met even after the patient leaves our hospital.
Various clerical areas
Looking for a more clerical volunteer role? The hospital also has opportunities for volunteers to use their office skills, including filing, copying, computer skills and using various office equipment. If you have Microsoft Office skills, then there are lots of different opportunities for you.
Not convenient to come to Randolph Health to volunteer? You can still contribute your time and make someone's day by volunteering from your own home.

Virtual volunteering is a wonderful way of providing a personal keepsake to each recipient.
