Community Outreach: A Healthier Place to Call Home

At Holland Hospital, we believe that delivering exceptional care means going above and beyond treating disease. Here, we strive to continually improve the health of the communities we’re proud to serve—so you and those you love have a more vibrant place to work, play, and live.

From comprehensive education initiatives to community classes and events to disease management programs, we work hard both inside and outside the walls of our hospital to inspire healthy lifestyle choices, active, independent living and greater physical, emotional and mental wellness.

In the spirit of hope, respect, compassion and dignity, our goals include:

  • Implementing effective programming to promote community health improvement
  • Collaborating and integrating with community agencies, school districts, and faith communities
  • Developing and implementing effective programming to promote employee wellness in partnership with local employers
  • Establishing mechanisms to measure the success of our community outreach programming

The Gift of Time

Volunteers play a valuable role in creating a positive, patient-focused culture at Holland Hospital. Our committed volunteers come from all over the lakeshore area and make an important difference in the lives of patients and families. Their contributions to our hospital and staff are immeasurable.

More than 250 volunteers donate more than 30,000 hours of service in 25 different areas. Jobs they perform include delivering meals, mail and flowers to patients, transporting patients to services or discharge, working in the Coffee Cove & Gift Shop, sponsoring the Lights of Love during the holiday season, and donating their time to many other service areas. Their generosity lifts the spirits of patients and staff alike.

If you’re at least 16-years-old and would like to donate some of your time, we encourage you to contact Holland Hospital Volunteer Services. Read more about available volunteer opportunities.
