They're a vital part of any organization, especially in hospitals. Finger Lakes Health Community Outreach Coordinator at Finger Lakes Health Christen Smith runs the volunteer program and she says volunteers can help patients and families, work in a gift shop, or they can do something as small as shredding papers. No matter what they do, Christen says volunteers are a vital part of Finger Lakes Health. People are encouraged to contact Christen if they wish to volunteer.
Volunteers must meet certain NYS Department of Health requirements by filling out an application, an annual health screening and Tuberculosis test.
The number to contact Christen is (315) 787-4065.
