You make a difference.

Our volunteers at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center play an important role in making our patients and their loved ones feel welcome. As a volunteer, you may be asked to greet patients or escort them to their destination. Such simple touches can go a long way toward easing their anxiety and boosting their confidence. In return, you get the opportunity to make connections, learn about your local hospital and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
