Crouse Hospital Celebrates National Volunteer Week

04/25/13

April 22-27 is national Volunteer Appreciation Week, a time set aside to celebrate those who dedicate themselves to giving—and ask for nothing in return. All across the U.S., millions of people volunteer for a variety of organizations and causes to make the world a better place.

More than 400 volunteers dedicate their time to Crouse Hospital every year. Last year, our 280 adult volunteers, 60 college student volunteers and 100 junior volunteers contributed 54,948 hours to hospital operations. Our volunteers completed more than 4,000 lab runs, 1,500 flower deliveries, 23,000 spiritual visits and 8,500 patient discharges.

The Crouse family thanks each and every one of our volunteers for being part of our "simply the best" team!

Meet Several of Our Wonderful Volunteers


Vol-Week-2013-2Christine is a student and has been volunteering at Crouse Hospital since January 2013. She loves the opportunity to work with friendly people in such a diverse environment every week. “Eventually, I want to work in a hospital setting, so this is a great opportunity for me to get involved and start learning about how a hospital environment functions.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vol-Week-2013-1Frank MacDowell is part of the local Syracuse community and in April 2006, his wife inspired him to start volunteering at Crouse. Although Frank’s wife has since sadly passed on, he was inspired to stay on as a volunteer by the friendliness and commitment that the employees and staff at Crouse showed toward his family. “Volunteering at Crouse is my way of giving back. I enjoy the contact with people on a regular basis. The idea of easing people out the door and making their stay here just a little bit better truly appeals to me.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vol-Week-2013-3Joel Savlov is a local Syracuse resident who has been volunteering at Crouse for the past 20 years. Being such a veteran, Joel helps out with training new volunteers and is dedicated to making the younger people in particular feel at home at Crouse. “It’s just a wonderful, interesting and yet challenging environment to work in and the people are so thoughtful. For me, it’s great to see all those young kids come in who dedicate their free time to a good cause and who truly care about making people’s lives better.”
