Departments, volunteers adjust to new office

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 CafĂ©.

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 smoothly.

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 Grove.
