Letter: Generous Volunteers at D-H

To the Editor:

At Dartmouth-Hitchcock, we are privileged to work with hundreds of community members who choose to volunteer their time with us. National Volunteer Week is April 6-12, providing a wonderful opportunity to honor these tremendous volunteers. On behalf of the entire staff of Dartmouth-Hitchcock, I applaud and salute all Dartmouth-Hitchcock volunteers.

Volunteers impact the patient experience in countless ways. Whether they are greeting and connecting patients and families to resources, offering wheelchair assistance, carrying amenities in our gift shop, offering warm blankets in the Emergency Department, raising funds, or asking patients for their perception of care, we simply could not provide the quality services we offer without the dedicated efforts of volunteers. Thanks to each and every one of you for all that you do.

If you would like information on how to join this amazing group of generous volunteers, please email volunteer.services@hitchcock.org, visit http://giving.dartmouth-hitchcock.org/volunteer/apply.html, or call the volunteer office at 603-650-7056.
