During National Volunteer Week, April 21-24, Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital (jehfoundation.org, MJE) gives special recognition to their many volunteers for all they do every day throughout the year. These wonderful individuals are treated to a special luncheon and program recognizing retired volunteers and presenting pins for volunteer hours served. During the month each hospital department takes a turn honoring volunteers by hand delivering a special treat to each volunteer working.

MJE Volunteers add to the quality of services provided to patients, their families and the community.   Every day, volunteers help improve a patient’s stay at the hospital by being welcoming, assuring and compassionate. They also assist doctors and nurses, deliver newspapers and flowers, welcome guests to the gift shop or provide helpful information at front desks.

Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital welcomes new volunteers to join this incredibly compassionate team who are the heart and soul of the hospital.  As a volunteer you can choose days, evenings or weekends to fit into your schedule. There are also opportunities to volunteer at special events and fundraisers.
