Volunteer With Us!
We have an immediate opening for a Client Support Volunteer at Cayuga Medical Center on Tuesdays 8:30-11:30am. This work is dynamic, engaging, and very rewarding. You would be responsible for patient comfort in the chemotherapy suite, providing a warm & open presence for patients and their families.
If you are interested in joining our team of dedicated, compassionate volunteers, please contact Sharon Kaplan, Director of Volunteer Services at 607-277-0960.
