We are quite lucky. Our family is larger than just our wonderful employee partners. We also have hundreds of dedicated volunteers who offer their time and talents to help support our patients in unique ways. Mercyhealth volunteers generously and expertly comfort and care for patients, both young and old. Just like our employee partners, our volunteers go above and beyond to make sure each patient and guest has the best experience possible, serving with tremendous humility and passion.
April 7 through April 13 is National Healthcare Volunteer Week. I’d like to recognize Mercyhealth’s nearly 2,000 outstanding volunteers for the selfless compassion they provide to our patients. They personify the spirit of community volunteerism through their generous donation of nearly 112,000 hours in 2018 alone to support a wide variety of Mercyhealth programs throughout southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
Thank you, Mercyhealth volunteers, for your selfless compassion and acts of kindness. Your passion makes lives better every day!
