Happy Volunteer Week!

Charleston, S.C.

Happy Volunteer Week! There is no way to properly thank the people who add that extra warm and caring touch to health care in this country. Every day, some working almost like full time employees, they are welcoming, comforting, rocking babies, passing meal trays, knitting baby bonnets, pushing wheelchairs and pouring cups of coffee for a patient's family member.

Volunteers are in action all over the Lowcountry but the team at Roper St. Francis Healthcare served over 88,000 hours just last year. They are a phenomenal group and I am fortunate to be allowed to work with them.

Besides that, they are a very colorful cast of rascals and characters! Love 'em all. I never have a boring day with this crowd. Picture me blowing kisses folks!
