National Volunteer Week: April 19 - 25, 2009

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority salutes all volunteers in healthcare!

Volunteers across Canada are being recognized this week for their volunteer contributions. Our volunteers, who assist in Winnipeg Regional Health Authority's facilities and programs, are no different. Throughout the region, there is a diverse pool of volunteers helping make our hospitals, personal care homes and community health programs a more welcoming and friendly place by providing directions to patients and visitors, helping support patients, clients and families, raising funds for patient care and supporting the work of staff. Over 5500 volunteers give their time, skills and talents to our programs, donating more than 350,000 hours.

Volunteers play an important role in supporting the values of meaningful community participation and improved health and well being of individuals, families and communities. Our programs and services are greater as a result!

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at one of WRHA's sites, please visit the WRHA Volunteer Services site.
