National Volunteer Week was celebrated April 7-13
Volunteers are the backbone of any organization, giving freely of their time and talents for the betterment of others.
Each INTEGRIS hospital has a volunteer auxiliary solely dedicated to improving the health care experience for those in their respective communities.
The volunteer auxiliary of INTEGRIS Canadian Valley Hospital, for example; has supported it’s hospital since 2001.
Currently, there are more than 140 active and associate members serving in several areas around the hospital; such as, the gift shop, information desk, patient visitation, pet therapy, mammography and surgery waiting room, knitting group, and many others.
These volunteers generate significant monies for the hospital. The proceeds from the gift shop benefit their philanthropy. They recently made a large contribution toward the completion of a new helipad and purchased larger, more visible televisions for each patient room.
As part of national Volunteer Appreciation Week, we would like to thank all of our volunteers throughout the system for their genuine love of service, and we applaud them for their continued generosity and selflessness.
