Hospital Volunteers Make a Difference!
The Jersey Shore Hospital Volunteers are an important part of our healthcare team. We rely on our volunteers to provide support to our patients, assist in departmental duties and assist our patient's families in needs they may have.
Many of our volunteers greet hospital visitors and patients and offer an encouraging smile. Our surgical waiting rooms are staffed with volunteers to assist family members and provide general information regarding the hospital. Family members find comfort in knowing that our volunteers are there to assist and support them.
Our volunteers also offer office assistance to any department that may need help in faxing, filing, answering telephones and labeling supplies. Some of our volunteers donate their time to prepare beds, deliver meals and transport patients.
Jersey Shore Hospital Volunteers generally donate a minimum of four hours per week to the hospital. This may be donated in separate shifts or all at once.
