As a volunteer resources consultant, Soroush Moghaddam develops volunteer programs for five hospitals in the Antigonish, Guysborough and Strait areas. He also recruits new volunteers and supports existing ones as they lend their time and skills to support patient care.
If you walk into Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow on a Thursday morning, you’re sure to see a smiling Jane Marshall ready to point you in the right direction. Marshall is one of 7,000 volunteers who selflessly give their time and energy to help Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) make patients and our province healthier.
From April 15-21, NSHA is honouring National Volunteer Week. This week we’re celebrating the amazing contribution of the 7,000 dedicated members of our community who make a difference, big and small to the well-being of patients, families, clients and residents. Thank you.
Today, the Aberdeen Health Foundation manages an endowment in excess of $40 million. With careful stewardship, the endowment provides $1to $1.5 million annually for enhancements to health care in Pictou County.
Let’s face it, a trip to the hospital is usually filled with a little bit of fear, apprehension and nervous energy. That’s why we have volunteers to greet and help patients and visitors as they arrive at our facilities across the province.
7,000 is an impressive number. And even more impressive, this is the number of volunteers Nova Scotia Health Authority is fortunate to have across the province.
Thank you to all of our volunteers. You are valued members of the Nova Scotia Health Authority team.
