Doctors Hospital of Manteca Celebrates Volunteer Month

Apr 27, 2018

Volunteers and therapy dogs
Manteca, Calif.
– Doctors Hospital of Manteca is proud to recognize the incredible work of its volunteers as part of National Volunteer Month.

DHM recognized its hospital volunteers on Tuesday, April 17, by hosting a celebration luncheon in honor of their dedication and service to the hospital. They do an amazing job of helping members of the community achieve a better quality of life. They support the facility and help hospital clinicians make sure patients are comfortable during their stay.

“The amount of selfless support and dedication that our family of volunteers lend to the hospital contributes greatly to our success,” said Brandon May, CEO of Doctors Hospital of Manteca. “That is why we are expressing our sincere appreciation by celebrating their amazing achievements and their passion for serving the community.”

The hospital’s group of volunteers also includes Paws 4 Friends, a local therapy dog club that visits Doctors Hospital of Manteca twice a week. The club provides its services to numerous organizations around the Manteca community.

Therapy dogs are trained to provide affection and comfort to people in stressful situations. Scientific research has shown that interaction with animals can significantly improve a person’s physical and emotional health. They can also help lower stress levels and help people cope with loss and depression, proving very beneficial in a hospital setting.

National Volunteer Month is celebrated all through the month of April and extends itself to specially dedicating one week to these amazing volunteers, April 16-20.
