You Can Make a Difference

Our volunteers are a vital part of the patient care team at Strong Memorial Hospital; providing much-needed services to enhance the health care experience for our patients and their families. They serve throughout the hospital and at some of our satellite locations escorting patients, delivering flowers, and assisting in our gift shop. Made up of people from all walks of life, education and skill level; we're honored to receive support from our diverse group volunteers. We hope to meet you soon!
