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.

TB Test: All new adult and teen volunteers will need to turn in the results of a TB test (There are some exceptions to this, based on your TB test history).  We can provide you with these two TB tests, but it will take a minimum of two weeks to complete. All Health Appraisals must be examined by our Employee Health Services and be completed prior to volunteering.  Once you complete the Health Appraisal, call Employee Health at 240-964-8210 for an appointment to be seen.
