RWJ Hamilton Honors Spirit of Service
In honor of National Volunteer Week, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton recognizes its volunteers for the time, service and difference they make each day at its medical facilities.
In 2012, more than 400 volunteers provided over 51,000 hours of service. Volunteers offer their time in service capacities such as patient transport, gift shop, pastoral care, and the information desk, as well as provide unique services such as Reiki, pet and harp therapy.
“From the minute a visitor enters our front door, they are greeted by volunteers with a smile and a helpful attitude,” says Kathy Gabel, manager of volunteer services. “They are an important part of our team of dedicated caregivers.”
Volunteering is a great opportunity for students and adults to be engaged and to give back to their community. RWJ Hamilton’s volunteers range in age from 15 to adults and serve a minimum of four hours a week.
“Volunteers are essential to RWJ Hamilton’s ability to provide an unmatched experience,” says Skip Cimino, president and CEO. “They are extraordinary individuals who have made a profound impact on our organization for many years.”
