Volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day operations of Griffin Hospital, providing assistance to patients, families and healthcare professionals and helping to make Griffin Hospital a warm and friendly community hospital. Volunteers support Griffin Hospital's mission of providing patient-centered care by offering their gifts of friendship, service, care, and compassion.
In key areas throughout Griffin Hospital and the Center for Cancer Care, our volunteers lend a helping hand to patients, visitors, and staff by providing hospitality services, amenities, and support services. Many of our essential Planetree programs and services would not be possible without the help of our dedicated corps of volunteers.
