We are proud of our volunteers! They play a very important role and their time and talents are greatly appreciated. Volunteers help us provide better service and contribute to the comfort and well being of our patients and visitors.
Our volunteers, people of all ages, work throughout the Hospital assisting staff, patients, and visitors in many ways. Volunteer opportunities include working and visiting with patients, the lay ministry program, staffing the hospitality desk, helping with activities and events, assisting departments with clerical work, and much more.
Volunteers in Action (ViA), which connects volunteers to neighbors in need, coordinates the volunteer activities at the Hospital. In the community, ViA volunteers provide a wide range of services including delivery of Meals on Wheels, transportation to medical appointments, minor home repairs, snow shoveling, and yard work. Volunteers may also visit with residents, provide short-term respite care, or offer shopping assistance.
