The Lenoir Memorial Hospital Volunteers
The Lenoir Memorial Hospital Volunteers (LMHV) is an organization formed in 1953 through the efforts of local physicians’ wives. The purpose of the LMHV is to serve and assist Lenoir Memorial Hospital. The history and tradition associated with Lenoir Memorial Hospital Volunteers are filled with many successes. It is the volunteers who developed the gift shop, sock monkeys for pediatric surgery patients, and complimentary coffee service for visitors.
The volunteers have generously donated money for vital equipment, nursing scholarships, the outdoor walking track, the Rehab Department, the Garden Room, the Wellness Center, and much more. Through Lenoir Memorial Hospital Volunteers funding, the Pastoral Care Program has been revitalized increasing the number of active chaplains from 4 to 25. Since its inception in 1986, the annual Lights of Love campaign has raised nearly half a million dollars for oncology services.
In addition to monetary support, the volunteers give the precious gift of time, as volunteers serve in many areas throughout the hospital. Annually, over 40,000 hours are donated to the patients and staff at Lenoir Memorial.
All volunteers at Lenoir Memorial can be recognized by their teal uniforms. The Lenoir Memorial Hospital Volunteers has its own leadership team who work in conjuction with the Director of Volunteer Services to provide vision for the volunteer program.
