In praise of hospital volunteers

April is National Volunteer Recognition Month, and South Peninsula Hospital would like to recognize the more than 100 individuals who volunteer to make our community hospital earn a spot in the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the nation.

Volunteers contribute to the leadership and vision of the hospital, the patient and resident care, and the health and wellness of our community. They raise funds, give advice, play a game, make a craft, donate supplies, weed a garden, decorate a tree and fill a stocking. They are there year-round to add that extra TLC and truly keep “community” in our community hospital.

On behalf of all of us at South Peninsula Hospital, we salute our many volunteers and say “thank you” for all that you do for the community.
