It's spring, time to officially recognize and celebrate the special volunteers who serve the patients and visitors at the Bluffton-Okatie Outpatient Center, Coastal Carolina Hospital and Hilton Head Hospital. National Volunteer Appreciation Week could not come at a better time.
As visitors flock to the Lowcountry, folks who never had it on their itinerary end up in our emergency room, fearing that this "little" hospital won't measure up to what they know back home.
Our volunteers go above and beyond to assure comfort and tender loving care.
As local residents are admitted to our in-patient units, they find their neighbors volunteering with dedication and helpful hearts.
As busy professionals rush to get in and out of their procedures quickly, volunteers provide access to the various departments efficiently and with a smile.
It's a gift to have such terrific volunteers at our health care centers.
To the 263 women, men and students serving at our three sites, please accept our grateful thanks.
