In honor of National Healthcare Volunteer Week, Florida Hospital Flagler hosted an appreciation luncheon at Carrabba's Italian Grill for more than 125 volunteers.
“This special week presents an opportunity to celebrate the everyday people who accomplish extraordinary things through service,” said Daryl Tol, Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler CEO. “These community members are essential to the health care team as they give of their time freely and ask for nothing in return.”

Last year, the volunteers at the Palm Coast hospital contributed nearly 55,000 hours of service to patients, families and staff. To date the volunteer auxiliary has donated nearly 1.5 million hours.
