Celebrating Grace Volunteers

From June 2nd to 8th we are celebrating the Contribution of Volunteers at the Grace. This week provides an opportunity to recognize our volunteers and to thank them for the contribution they make at the Grace.

Over the past year, approximately 200 volunteers provided support at the hospital assisting patients, family and staff. Grace volunteers provide support in many programs and services at the Hospital including our Complex Care and Palliative Care Units, Therapeutic Recreation, Rehabilitation, Spiritual Care, Dietetic Services, Infection Control, Pharmacy, Volunteer Resources, Health Records, Chiropody, Arts at the Grace and Pet Therapy. We are also grateful for the many volunteers who transitioned with us to the Hillcrest site.

Fill out our volunteer quiz at www.surveymonkey.com/s/VGK7DL5 and you could win one of the following prizes: a canvas duffle bag, a stainless steel thermos, a custom ballpoint pen. You can also pick up a copy of the quiz from the Volunteer Office.
