March 2015 Team of the Month
The volunteer department for Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford consist of 230 adult and teen volunteers. In 2014 our volunteers dedicated approximately 25,000 volunteer hours to Hallmark Health System, working in gift shops, patient access, hematology and oncology, endoscopy, the emergency departments, pre-admission testing and the medical floors, just to name a few. In addition to working within specific departments, volunteers visit patients with the library cart and deliver mail. Volunteers also make crafts that are given to patients at the holidays or when they are being discharged.
A substantial number of teenage volunteers represent many local high schools, including Melrose, Medford, Malden Catholic, Austin Prep, Pope John the XXII, Reading, Wakefield, Burlington and Billerica. Five of our teen volunteers will be graduating in June and pursuing careers within the medical field.
Help us celebrate our volunteers during National Volunteer Week, April 12-17, 2015.
They are just an amazing group of people!
