Volunteering at Central Vermont Medical Center

"I love it at CVMC. The hospital has such a calm and welcoming atmosphere, and Woodridge is the nicest nursing home I've ever visited. Every week Renee and I make at least one special connection with a patient or family member. Truly this is the most rewarding way I've ever found to volunteer."

The best thing about volunteering is interacting with people who work here and the patients. You get very good vibes in a place like this. The people who work here are wonderful and very appreciative.
