“The mission of the Volunteer Program is to support the patients and staff of MVH & IFCH through compassionate conversations, caring acts of kindness, and making patients’ stays with us comfortable.”
Thank you for your interest in the Volunteer Program at MVH & IFCH! We strive to make our patients’ hospital visit the best it can be. In order to do that, we rely on volunteers to provide the humanistic touch that can sometimes be overlooked in a busy medical environment.
Additionally, the volunteer program raises funds for causes in the community. For example, the volunteers have donated money to the CEI Scholarship Fund for students going into the medical field.
Our vision is to create a hospital visit that is caring, comfortable, and compassionate
Respect for ourselves, others and our surroundings
Efficiency in our actions and communication
Compassion for the varied experiences of others
Relationship-Building with each other, the hospital community and the communities we serve.
Preparation and Resources to recruit, train and support volunteers and patients
Professionalism in everything we do- from the way we dress to the behavior we exhibit and the decision to treat others well.
Education to improve our knowledge skills and personal development.
