Palisades Medical Center Volunteer Services
You're just the person we've been looking for...
Palisades Medical Center volunteers are diverse in their backgrounds and ages — professionals, retirees, students, newcomers and stay-at-home moms. But the one thing that all PMC volunteers have in common is their generosity. They are always eager to give of themselves to enrich the lives of our patients, staff and visitors.
We invite you to join our team of dedicated volunteers to ensure that Palisades Medical Center continues to provide world-class care for our community.

Programs For Teens
Palisades Medical Center is the perfect place for local high school students to volunteer, thanks to our flexible scheduling and summer volunteer opportunities. By volunteering, students can make their college applications stand out from the rest by building on their resume of activities. Local students also fulfill their high school community service requirements by volunteering at Palisades.
"Since I was a young boy, I always wanted to be a surgeon. My volunteer service at Palisades gave me my first real-world experience in a hospital setting. I learned how to organize surgical instruments and delivered them to the O.R. surgeons. I am now even more inspired to begin my college pre-med studies."
— Marco, 17, of Cliffside Park
