“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 and East Lobbies , and various outpatient cliics. In addition, if you have a therapy dog, we would love to talk to you about our pet therapy program! If you are interested, please contact us or fill out and submit a volunteer application.
