Volunteer program mission
The spirit and tradition of volunteering are those of giving of yourself to help others. Our volunteers are individuals committed to those traditions and who demonstrate that commitment through participation in the provision of health care in our community. Our volunteer resources reflect the highest standards of quality and excellence and continually respond to meet the needs of the community.
Volunteers contribute with pride to the success of the organization by making a difference in the lives of those we help each day. We:
  • respect diversity and strive to foster an environment that nurtures creativity and innovation
  • value the talents, skills and potential each volunteer brings and
  • believe in taking an active role in promoting a healthier community through volunteerism
