A Strong Bond of Caring

Under the auspices of the Mission and Ministry Division we welcome over one hundred caring individuals who donate their time and energy to help brighten the lives of our patients. They also provide support services in most of the medical center's departments. This enables staff to work more efficiently, and caregivers to devote more of their efforts to patient care.

Volunteers range in age from 15 to more than 90 years young and are guided under the leadership of Russell Hansel, VP for Mission and Ministry.

A prominent part of the volunteer force belongs to the department's Junior Volunteer Program for 15 to 17 year olds. The program includes high school students who volunteer or complete their senior internship projects at the medical center.

Physically and emotionally challenged individuals provide valuable clerical services at the medical center. Our numbers continue to grow in this area, and their performance is nothing short of outstanding. They provide the medical center with needed assistance while simultaneously learning new skills, building self-esteem, confidence, and good work habits, as well as developing social skills.

This diverse group of individuals, who share a strong bond of caring, travel to the medical center from towns all over central New Jersey. Many of our volunteers have donated time and in return tell us they have made new friends and come away with great feelings of satisfaction.

We take time to discuss individual interests, goals, likes and dislikes before placing anyone in a specific service area. Our enthusiastic volunteers contribute in many areas around the medical center.
