Volunteer Services, along with the Service Excellence Department, will operate more efficiently under one roof after their operations consolidated from the Beech Grove campus to Indianapolis. Both departments are now located near the Women & Children’s Center elevator bank, just down the hall from the gift shop and Jazzman’s Café.
Even though both departments have
moved to the Indianapolis Campus, many
volunteers will remain at Beech Grove until
the consolidation next March.
The Volunteer Services department has
created a new volunteer workroom. With open
shelving and portable tables to accommodate
both large and small projects, the workroom
provides a welcoming atmosphere for the
volunteers. The space allows major projects,
such as putting together the admission
discharge packets for new patients to stuffing
envelopes for various departments, to run
Franciscan St. Francis Health currently
has nearly 600 active volunteers, some
volunteering at more than one campus. There
are 335 volunteers at Indianapolis, 125 at
Beech Grove, 70 at Mooresville, and 38 off-site.
Five members of the Service Excellence
staff have moved to the Indianapolis Campus
while the others continue to serve Beech
