Volunteers at RRMC are honored during National Volunteer Recognition Week.

RUTLAND— In celebration of National Volunteer Recognition Week, April 16-20, 2018, Rutland Regional Medical Center is proud to honor our 374 volunteers. Our volunteers have been involved with the hospital since its beginning in 1896 and today they serve in 38 areas of the hospital. Collectively they have contributed 52,059 hours supporting staff in clinical and nonclinical areas. Their contribution is invaluable to our organization and engaging to them. Their tasks vary widely from: visiting patients, running errands, entering data, answering call bells, cuddling babies, playing live music, providing information, gardening , offering certified dog visits, driving patients to appointments, providing peer support, assisting people with Advance Directive paperwork, installing Lifelines and so much more.

Here are some quotes from our very grateful staff, “The care that our patients receive is positively impacted by the dedication of our volunteers.” “Thank you for all you do. You are awesome.” “They are an integral part of our team.”

They bring smiles, great energy, and boundless enthusiasm to their work, and Rutland Regional is thankful every day for their service.
