Volunteers make a difference! Our volunteers and auxiliary members strive to help make hospitalizations and visits as comfortable as possible. 

An on-site gift shop is located near the waiting room on the main floor and is operated by a special group of volunteers — community members who give their time to help make your stay more pleasant. Proceeds from our gift shop and vending machines are used to fund scholarships for students in the healthcare field. 

Other volunteer services include delivering patient mail and flowers, and providing complementary coffee and snacks to visitors, patients and their families who are waiting in the main, surgical and ICU waiting rooms.
