Our Volunteers Improve Patient Experience

On Tuesday, December 4 at 11:00 AM, Woman’s Hospital’s volunteers were honored for annual hours and years of service at their annual holiday brunch and awards ceremony, but it’s their impact through the year that makes a difference to so many women and families who walk through Woman’s doors. They have assumed a large responsibility in welcoming and guiding visitors around the new campus. With special training, some are “cuddlers” for premature infants, and some visit with cancer patients. In 2012, Woman’s volunteers have donated more than 20,561 hours of volunteer service to the hospital, which is equivalent to $448,024 of volunteer time, based on the Points of Light Foundation. However, their only compensation is the tremendous gratitude of Woman’s and its patients.
