National Healthcare Volunteer Week

By AHA STAT Staff
April 25, 2017

This is National Healthcare Volunteer Week, when the AHA’s Association for Healthcare Volunteer Resource Professionals celebrates the service, dedication and commitment of hospital volunteers. 

National Healthcare Volunteer Week was established in 1974 to recognize and celebrate the efforts of volunteers across the country. Since then, the original emphasis on celebration has widened. The week has become a nationwide effort to urge people to get out and volunteer in their communities.

Volunteers are the backbone of our hospitals and health systems. Their service to patients and communities helps improve care and promote collaboration among hospitals, health systems and community groups. Please join us in thanking volunteers during the 2017 National Healthcare Volunteer Week and in celebrating and recognizing your volunteers’ efforts to advance your organization.
