Mercy Health - Cincinnati Thanks its Volunteers for their Service

(CINCINNATI; April 13, 2015) – On the occasion of Volunteer Week, Mercy Health, which provides advanced, quality, compassionate care in your neighborhood through its care network, thanks its many volunteers who help make that remarkable care possible.

While National Volunteer Week runs from April 12-18, Mercy Health’s volunteer corps delivers service tirelessly week after week in a wide variety of roles, including clinic physicians and nurse practitioners, greeters, clerks, aides, messengers, patient partners, transporters and drivers.

Mercy Health - Cincinnati has over 1,200 active volunteers at our hospitals alone. These volunteers provided more than 230,000 hours of service last year. More volunteers serve at Mercy Health’s senior living facilities, social service agencies and other locations. Some have served as volunteers for close to 30 years, while others are approaching a remarkable 30,000 hours of service. Mercy Health will honor the volunteers with celebrations and acknowledgments of a job well done.

“Our volunteers play a vital role in helping Mercy Health provide our patients with compassionate care and the attention they deserve,” said President and CEO John Starcher. “They are our ambassadors and give freely of their time, energy and enthusiasm to create a warm, supporting and caring environment for our patients and residents. We thank our volunteers for their selfless commitment this week and every week.”
