"We are the vibrant hospital we are today because of people like our volunteers. They help make high-quality health care available for this community."

More than 100 volunteers, guests and MVH employees attended the Aug. 3 event in the Anthony M. Lombardi Education Conference Center. Among the groups recognized were:
  • "Ask Me" Greeters
