“Being a Lahey Volunteer is an excellent opportunity to say comforting words to a family member waiting for a loved one in surgery, provide direction to a wandering patient attempting to find an appointment location, or use a little humor to relieve a stressful situation. I feel that occasionally I make a positive difference in someone’s life. My payoff is a smile and a simple ‘thank you.’”
“I worked at Lahey for 30 years in jobs in Utilization Review, Risk Management, and Medical Records. I truly loved the work I did, and not many people can say that. So when my husband passed away, I decided to help ease my loneliness by returning to Lahey as a volunteer. It keeps me socially active and connected to young people in the community. And I also get a great deal of satisfaction from helping people and receiving their thanks.”
Lahey’s Volunteer & Community Services is seeking outgoing, physically active individuals to volunteer in several areas, including the Main Lobby and Ambulatory Surgery Family Waiting Room. If you are interested, please contact us or fill out and submit a volunteer application.
