Interested in Volunteering?
Our Glens Falls Hospital volunteer community donated over 27,000 hours of service in 2017, including pre-med college student volunteers, teens and adults. From greeters to lab runners, our volunteers are a vital part of our community and are often the unsung heroes of Glens Falls Hospital. Today, more than 275 volunteers of all ages support over 30 different departments of our network. In 2017, our volunteers delivered nearly 1,200  oral arrangements, made more than 440 walker bags for our rehabilitation unit, created nearly 2,000 hats and pillowcases, supported major patient mailings, and helped to provide pet therapy in our behavioral health unit, just to name a few.
Glens Falls Hospital is also forever thankful for the nearly $3 million in total gifts and contributions in 2017, the largest annual amount raised since the early 2000’s during the campaign for the new Northwest Tower.
Glens Falls Hospital is honored to have the support of local and state elected of cials. In 2017, we were delighted to have a visit from our friends Senator Betty Little, NYS Commissioner of Health Dr. Howard A. Zucker, Senator Charles R. Schumer and NYS Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to talk about various healthcare initiatives.
