Each day at Capital Medical Center, our volunteers play a vital role in the healing process of our patients. These special people freely offer their time in order to help others. The role of a volunteer in the hospital is to assist in achieving the hospital goals of high quality service to patients and internal staff. Volunteers provide many extra services that allow our staff to focus on patient care.
