Supporting WVU Medicine Uniontown Hospital

A Volunteer adds that special touch, an extra smile and a willing pair of hands

At WVU Medicine Uniontown Hospital, our Volunteers have various opportunities to interact with patients, visitors and staff through programs that focus on the patient and visitor experience, hospitality, clerical support for our staff and fundraising. 

In addition to our many adult volunteers, we also are thankful for our group of dedicated young volunteers. Our Junior Volunteer Program, where participants are between the ages of 14 to 18 years, help bring a burst of vitality to the hospital.

The Junior Volunteer Program helps to teach responsibility, fosters professional skills and provides on-the-job experience to examine careers in the health care field.  Most importantly, it gives young people an opportunity to share their time and talents with others.

Whatever your interest, we'll try to match it to ours. We can help you give the greatest gift of all, You!
