Milford Regional Medical Center recently honored the more than 500 volunteers who contribute their time and talents to support the patients and staff with a celebratory luncheon at the Hopedale Community House.
The annual luncheon is an opportunity for department managers and administrative staff to show their appreciation and thank the volunteers for their service. Milford Regional has a total of 511 volunteers who contributed 36,347 hours of support to patients and staff in more than 40 different roles during 2016.
“We are fortunate to have such caring and skilled people volunteer at Milford Regional,” says Elaine Willey, Director of Volunteer Services. “Volunteers positively impact patients from newborns to end of life, and provide support to staff throughout the Medical Center.”
Attached is a photo of the volunteers who have dedicated 500 or more hours to the hospital and a list of volunteers by town in your coverage area.
