Volunteer

"There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed." - Albert Schweitzer

Volunteers who wish to provide human service in work for our common good have many such opportunities at MedStar Union Memorial. We offer meaningful experiences in many areas, from direct care with patients in our patient aide, and hospitality programs, to Auxiliary fund-raising programs such as the Gift Shop and special sales. A variety of behind-the-scenes positions are also available, including work in our library, blood bank, employee health and medical records. We offer a unique variety of opportunities designed to match your skills, interests and preferences with the hospital's needs.
