Mayo University Hospital (MUH) recently launched their new volunteers’ booth donated by Baxter Healthcare in recognition of the hard work and dedication of the hospital staff throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
MUH Volunteer Service
The MUH Volunteer Service has had over 50 members of the community participating in the scheme since its inception in March 2012, with volunteers ensuring patients and visitors have a warm, friendly welcome and are assisted with directions and any information needed.
Expressing her delight, Catherine Donohoe, Hospital Manager said they were “very pleased” to be able to “welcome back our volunteers who, throughout the pandemic, could not be on site due to social distancing and infection control restrictions.
“Patients are at the heart of everything we do and this is most true for our volunteers who demonstrate this in the care, laughs and smiles that they exchange with our patients.
“Our volunteers bring the energy and enthusiasm of members of the local community who want to give something back, into the hospital. I would like to sincerely thank management and staff of Baxter for their support and very generous donation.”
