Vanguard Weiss Memorial Hospital strives to provide the best customer service to our patients and families through outstanding medical practices and attentive employees. The volunteer department supports this goal with its 150 volunteers, who work in a variety of departments throughout the hospital. Our friendly volunteers complement the care delivered by professional staff by making sure the needs of the patients, families and visitors are met.
From greeting visitors and helping them find their destinations to being a compassionate voice on the phone, our volunteers help make our patients and their families feel welcome and appreciated. Volunteers assigned to patient care units are vital in helping ensure that a patient’s experience at Weiss is a pleasant one. Volunteers also provide clerical support, including filing, mailings and computer work. In the WISE Senior Center, volunteers assist with a variety of activities to support our active senior population.
