Volunteers were treated to lunch at the hospital and thanked for their tireless efforts. In 2022, Central Maine Healthcare volunteers contributed more than 9,714 hours to operations. This included:
- 83 patient escorts
- 1,835 patient discharges
- 1,604 lab deliveres
- 1,255 projects
- 475 flower deliveries

“Our volunteers are a valued part of the CMH team,” said Dick Kropp, EdD, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, senior vice president, chief people officer, Central Maine Healthcare. “They have many choices of places to spend their time, and they choose to work side-by-side with us every day.
“We are asking all of our team members to take a moment during National Volunteer Week-and every time they see a volunteer-and say, ‘Thank you for volunteering.’ It’s the least we can do to thank them for all they do.”
