“Volunteers are an important part of Morris Hospital and how we serve our community,” says Karen Nowosielski, Manager of Volunteer Services at Morris Hospital. “When placing each volunteer in a position, we are committed to finding the best match based on the volunteer’s wishes, interests and availability, along with the needs of the hospital.

In addition to attending new volunteer orientation, all volunteers receive training in order to carry out their specific responsibilities. Hospital volunteers are provided a uniform and picture identification badge to wear while performing volunteer duties. Morris Hospital provides volunteers complimentary flu shots, meals in the hospital on the day of service, as well as recognition for service hours.
“One of the greatest benefits that comes with volunteering is the opportunity to make friends and learn new skills,” says Nowosielski. “Our volunteers consider themselves a family, and they are wonderful people who want to make a difference in their community.”
