Brett Harvey,
Family Liaison Volunteer
"I volunteer because I'm retired, have time on my hands, and wanted to make a contribution to my community. The moment when family members grab my hands and say, 'Thanks so much for your help!' makes it all worthwhile."

Volunteers at the Annual Volunteer Celebration Dinner

There are many reasons to join the NYM volunteer team. First and foremost, by giving your time and talent to help improve patients' experiences, you can make a real difference in another person's life. But, volunteering may also have a major impact on your own life. Many of our volunteers have told us that they have benefited from their experience by gaining a sense of purpose, expanding their social circles, exploring career options, and making meaningful contributions to the Hospital community. While it is difficult to quantify what the personal rewards for each individual will be, we also provide a few tangible benefits as our way of saying thank you for your dedication and service.

  • A complimentary meal every day served
