Volunteers Make a Difference!
A message from Sutter Health President and CEO Pat Fry.
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time. They just have the heart.” — Elizabeth Andrew
This Sunday, April 6, marks the beginning of National Volunteer Week—a special time to recognize all those who give back to their communities by generously contributing their skills and experience to make a positive difference.
Throughout our Sutter Health care centers, about 5,000 volunteers donate their time and energy to help us create an environment where patients feel respected, valued and understood. From greeting visitors and answering their questions to helping families in emergency rooms, our volunteers share our commitment to giving patients an exceptional, personalized care experience, every time.
In honor of National Volunteer Week, I want to personally thank our volunteers for their daily partnership with us, our patients and their families. They’ve chosen to volunteer within Sutter because they believe in us and the work we do. Let’s show them our appreciation by saying “thank you”—this coming week and every day.
