From Vidant Beaufort Hospital

 

In celebration of National Volunteer Week (April 6th – 12th), Vidant Beaufort Hospital wishes to thank our over 150 volunteers who give so graciously of their time to benefit our hospital and patients. “Our volunteers give generously of their time and energy to support our hospital, our employees and our patients every day; their contributions are countless,” says hospital president Harvey Case.

 

According to Jan Hamblin, manager of volunteer services, “our volunteers are fantastic! You will find them throughout our hospital assisting patients, visitors, and staff in so many ways.  In 2013, they contributed 14,030 hours, the equivalent of 7.5 FTE’s.  Using the 2009 Independent Sector estimate of the value of a volunteer hour in North Carolina, the monetary value of these hours equals $267,833.00!”

 

Vidant Beaufort Hospital is also supported by a group of teenage volunteers during the summer months. These dedicated students provide a great service to the hospital and patients as well as get a first-hand look at the healthcare industry.

In addition to the hospital’s regular volunteers and summer volunteers, there are many people in our community who give tirelessly of their time knitting and crocheting items for our newborns and cancer patients. The hospital greatly appreciates their generosity.  “All of our hospital volunteers contribute to our organization’s success,” says Hamblin.  “We could not do it without them.”
