If you are interested in sharing your time and your unique talents, we welcome your contributions! The Western Maryland Health System relies on volunteers as a vital part of the ongoing care we provide.  There are many opportunities to get involved at one of our locations and we have something for almost everyone. Volunteering is mutually beneficial for the health system, the volunteer, and the community.

Health Requirements

  • Complete Immunization Record/History with dates of disease, vaccine or titer. If you have had the disease and are unsure of the date, estimate the year you would have had the disease. Tdap vaccine is required in order to volunteer at Western Maryland Health System. If you have not had this vaccine, you are able to receive it at a pharmacy or health department. Employee Health needs documentation of this vaccine.  If you are able to obtain a copy of your immunization record, please attach it to this form.
  • Employee Health will administer the two step PPD skin test. When you have completed this form and your physician has signed it, please contact Employee Health at 240-964-8210 for an appointment. If your physician requires that one PPD be done before he signs the form, you may go to a local clinic to have that done. Employee Health will need documentation of this PPD if done at a clinic. Employee Health will administer the second PPD.

If you have any questions about completion of this form, please contact Employee Health at 240-964-8210.
