For a hospital patient, a smile and a few words of encouragement can make a real difference. Volunteers provide support, encouragement and a fresh perspective to patients and the hospital.
In return, volunteers become part of our family, and they join the team of physicians, nurses, staff members and others who make our patients feel at home.
We work closely with each new volunteer to find an assignment that matches his or her interests, skills, and motivation.
