Volunteer at Transylvania Regional Hospital

Since TRH was founded, our staff and patients have relied on the good works of our volunteers to enhance the quality of care we provide.

Today, more than 150 volunteers work in a wide variety of jobs touching just about every Hospital department. In addition to their work, volunteers enjoy benefits such as luncheons, a semi-annual newsletter, free flu shots, service pins and free cafeteria meals while on duty.
