National Volunteer Week – April 21-27

Letter to the Editor

Greg Lowe, CEO

Lake Norman Regional Medical Center

At Lake Norman Regional Medical Center, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional care with kindness and compassion. But outstanding care is much more than medical treatment, it’s also about a personal connection. It’s about taking the time to talk to patients and their loved ones — about offering support and assistance, and making them feel more comfortable.

Our volunteers play a key role in providing that personal touch. Whether it’s offering a smile or kind words, assisting someone in need or lending a helping hand to help make a patient or family member more comfortable, our volunteers make a difference.

April 21-27 is National Volunteer Week, and I’d like to take a moment to honor the dedicated volunteers who generously give their time to improve the experience for our patients and visitors. We consider our volunteers to be key members of our health care team, and their contributions are felt throughout the hospital. Although we’re publicly honoring them this week, our appreciation for what they do is ongoing.

On behalf of everyone at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center, I’d like to say thank you to our extraordinary volunteers, and to all those who serve at organizations throughout our community. You’ve chosen to spend your valuable time serving others, and your efforts make a difference to so many. Thank you for everything you do — you are truly valued.
