through compassionate service and support. From offering a warm smile
and cheerful “hello” to visitors, to helping someone find the perfect
gift for a loved one, or rocking a newborn baby in our NICU, our
volunteers are dedicated to service excellence. Our volunteers are an
essential part of our Community of Caring, impacting so many of the
General's patients, visitors, friends, doctors, nurses and staff. They
provide the little extras that help to create that special
experience people have come to know and love at the General.
