CATSKILL REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER CELEBRATES NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK APRIL 21-27 – 04/22/2013
National Volunteer Week originated in 1974, and was created to celebrate people doing extraordinary things through service. The Week also inspires, recognizes and encourages individuals to seek ways to engage in their communities. During Volunteer Week at CRMC, the hospital recognizes volunteers for their outstanding contributions to support patients, their families and communities.
“We ask everyone to join us in recognizing and thanking all of Catskill Regional Medical Center’s volunteers – we are so grateful for all they do,” said Jodi Goodman, Director of Community Services and the Volunteer Office. “Our volunteers have positively impacted the lives of many, and they serve as an inspiration to our community.”
Volunteers serve in a variety of areas at CRMC, both at the Harris campus and Grover M. Hermann Hospital in Callicoon. They help out in the gift shop, bring mail and flowers to patients’ rooms, run errands for the doctors and nurses, work in the library, do filing, transport patients in wheelchairs and read aloud to patients.
The Volunteer Office does its best to match volunteers with tasks that are appropriate to the skills and experiences they bring to CRMC. Volunteers can create their own schedules; hours and days are flexible. For more information or to become a volunteer at CRMC, call 845.794.3300 ext. 2184
