Volunteers are a ‘work of heart.’ That was the theme of this year’s Volunteer Recognition event. Bayhealth has more than 500 community members who volunteer each year, donating 75,000 hours of time to the organization. Volunteers work in all facets of the hospital, assisting 50 different departments, from the front desk, onward, helping patients through their entire stay and recovery.
Bayhealth President and CEO Terry Murphy, FACHE, thanked the volunteers for their service. “Thank you for giving back to our community,” said Murphy. “Our volunteers are an integral part of our Bayhealth family.”
Governor Jack Markell attended the event and declared it “Bayhealth Volunteer Day” with an official tribute. During the event, Volunteer Services Manager Carrie Hart stated the value of the time Bayhealth volunteers have given back to the community over the past year represented over $1.5 million.
“Our volunteers are such a wonderful group of people,” said Hart. “We accomplish so much more because of our volunteers, and it has such a great impact on the patient experience at Bayhealth.” For more information about volunteering at Bayhealth, go to bayhealth.org/volunteer.
