Volunteers at East Cooper Medical Center

Our hospital community is greatly enriched by the volunteers who devote their time to the patients, families, and staff every day. They serve as an integral part of the hospital, providing a more personal touch for its visitors.

Becoming a volunteer is easy and convenient. The biggest thing you need is a passion for serving and helping others.

Volunteer Opportunities at East Cooper Medical Center

“I also participate in what they call the Joint Camp, where the patients who have had replacement parts put in come together. They are walked through the discharge process and walked through physical therapy. I relate to them because I have been there, both hips and knees. So I can talk to them about it.” —Pete Stirling, Volunteer at East Cooper Medical Center
