Volunteers help patients, visitors, employees and themselves
In 2007, volunteers logged more than 84,000 hours for St. Rose Dominican Hospitals which is the equivalent of 37 employees working full time for one year! St. Rose cherishes these loyal individuals (now numbering more than 500) and the selfless time they donate to the hospitals.
"Our volunteers are here by choice and provide a service that is intangible," said Sharon Moxley, Volunteer Director. "Their warmth and caring is evident in every department they work for. We love our volunteers."
If you are interested in volunteering, consider this:
- you will be educated to be the best good will ambassador you can be;
- you will gain the satisfaction that comes from knowing that you make a difference to patients, staff and the community; you will expand your life experiences and skills;
- you will find a rewarding change of pace from your regular routines;
- your services are needed every day and night of the week; and
- you will meet other volunteers and staff who may become good friends and associates.
