Updated Visitation Policy (4/22)

Effective April 22, 2022 we have updated both hospitals’ Visitation Policy: RMC medical inpatients who are negative for COVID-19 will be allowed one visitor per day during their stay, including ONE overnight visitor. Read the full policy for details here.

Requirements/Getting Started

All volunteers must be immunized, which includes a tuberculosis (TB) skin test once per year and a hepatitis series if applicable, according to Regional Medical Center’s policy. The TB skin test series is given free of charge.

All volunteers are required to go through an Alabama state background check before volunteering. To complete the background check, all volunteers must submit a completed form of personal identification information along with their application.

The commitment for our Regular Volunteer Program is four hours per week for a long term interest.

All applicants must be 19 years of age or over to be considered for the RMC Auxiliary volunteer program. Age restrictions apply in some departments, including the Emergency Department.

Your department depends on you to be consistent and dependable. If you are not able to volunteer for any reason, please call your designated volunteer department chairman or your assigned department in advance.


It is very important for the Auxiliary to keep track of all volunteer hours. Please sign in and out in the Auxiliary office on the main floor of the hospital before and after each volunteer shift. Other pertinent information may be posted there for your review.

We ask that our volunteers maintain a casual professional dress. Volunteers will find this detailed listing in the Auxiliary handbook.
