The role of the volunteers in the hospital is to assist us in achieving the hospital’s goals which are to provide high quality, cost effective healthcare services and to promote these services in the community.
Volunteers achieve these goals by:
- Augmenting and expanding the services provided by our staff.
- Providing desirable supplemental services which contribute to total patient care and patient satisfaction.
- Assisting the non-patient care departments by providing clerical support.
- Helping to create and promote an understanding of the hospital and its services in the community.
