Volunteering at PMH

Pender Memorial Hospital volunteers are a vital part of the Pender Memorial team.  More than 25 volunteers serve on the campus of Pender Memorial Hospital.  They brighten patients' experiences by adding warmth and a personal touch to what may be a stressful time for patients, their families, and friends.  Volunteers also provide valuable assistance to the hospital staff so they can spend more time caring for patients and providing excellent medical care.
