Carolinas HealthCare System Lincoln provides a high level of professionalism and medical technology combined with the essential element of the human touch, which all aid in improving overall health. Our volunteers are of great service to the hospital in providing that additional compassionate, healing and high-touch presence at work in a high-tech environment. Volunteers assist in alleviating the natural fears and apprehension of a patient or family member by performing courteous and beneficial services. They help reduce the isolation and stress associated with hospitalization by delivering mail or flowers to the patient, filling a water pitcher, escorting a family member to the appropriate area, communicating to family members and friends while they are waiting for surgery and recovery of their loved ones, or simply working in the gift shop.
No matter how small the service may seem, volunteers continue to prove themselves as an integral part of the healing process.
