Volunteers have been an integral part of Floyd from the very beginning, when Red Cross volunteers served at what was then Floyd Hospital during World War II. Today, volunteers continue to serve, sharing their time and expertise to enrich services, enhance the patient experience and provide a vital connection to the community.
Each year volunteers donate approximately 45,000 hours to Floyd, serving in three primary areas:
Floyd volunteers have a legacy of caring and service that is recognized each year with the Good Samaritan Volunteer of the Year award for outstanding service, given to a Floyd volunteer as part of the commemoration of National Volunteer Appreciation Week. Long-term outstanding service is recognized with the Lifetime Volunteer Achievement Award when a nominee merits this special recognition. See honorees.
