Saint Peter’s is proud to have dedicated junior, college and senior volunteers working in many areas within the hospital. Our volunteers give their valuable time to serve the needs of our hospital community—patients, families and staff. Volunteers help in many ways. They may provide clerical support in offices, assist with maintaining nursing unit supplies, deliver newspapers, and provide recreational programs and support services for our patients. Volunteers may serve as “friendly visitors,” visiting patients who have been in the hospital for an extended time.
The “Silver Spoons” volunteers are specially trained to assist patients who require help with eating during mealtimes. Pet therapy volunteers visit patients weekly with their certified dogs. For your enjoyment, volunteers provide free televised Bingo games every Tuesday from 1:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. on Channel 3. Game cards and prizes are delivered to winners in their rooms.
Saint Peter’s offers its patients and families free Wi Fi Internet service. With more than 20 hotspots throughout the hospital, you will find our wireless network easy to access and use.
