Every day at Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH), we are grateful for the volunteers who provide support to patients, families and staff membersthroughout the hospital. They are an essential part of our care team. And they also raise thousands of dollars for hospital equipment each year and provide bursaries to local high school graduates.

Recently, the WDMH Leadership team hosted an appreciation luncheon to officially thank the volunteers for their amazing work. The afternoon included lunch and entertainment – and, of course, cupcakes!

WDMH CEO Cholly Boland thanked the volunteers for everything they do: “We can’t thank our volunteers often enough. Whether it’s the thousands of hours they work at WDMH or the thousands of dollars they raise for WDMH, we couldn’t operate a hospital without our volunteers. They are truly priceless!”
