Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. April 23, 2013.

Bonnie O'Neill, VP Employee Services, Dave Henry, CEO and Claire Wendland, Volunteer Director.

A hospital volunteer is a person who donates his or her time and skill to support the work of the hospital staff. Volunteers are dedicated people who make a difference! Their volunteer work benefits patients, families, staff, and the community as a whole.

As a volunteer, you will be asked to wear a uniform that we provide to you, meet health requirements, and attend orientation and on-the-job-training. Be prompt and dependable; accept supervision gracefully; maintain a high standard of conduct; be honest and cooperative; observe all medical center rules.
