Approximately 200 volunteers attended AtlantiCare’s Volunteer Appreciation Dinner at Renault Winery in Egg Harbor City Thursday. National Volunteer Appreciation Week was April 21 through 27.

“Whether you are welcoming a concerned family member visiting a loved one in our hospital, adding to our healing environment by sharing your beautiful musical talents, helping us with clerical work; comforting a Hospice patient and her family – or raising funds to support our programs and services, each of you dedicates your time and talents in your unique way to make a difference for our customers,” said Margaret Belfield, chief operating officer, AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

AtlantiCare’s more than 270 adult volunteers from Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Ocean counties, assist patients and staff throughout AtlantiCare in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to serving in various areas of AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, including the Joint, Spine and Heart institutes; Emergency and Radiology departments; Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Roger B. Hansen Center for Childbirth; Hospice and Palliative Care program; Information Desk; Pastoral Care Department and throughout the hospital by performing in AtlantiCare’s Creative Arts and Healing Program; and at the AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute, a Fox Chase Cancer Center Partner. Volunteers also include auxiliary members, who support hospital programs and services and the ARMC Heart Institute Heart Heroes volunteers, who raise funds to purchase automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for use in the community.
