Celebrating the Change Makers: Our Volunteers

We hosted our Annual Volunteer Lunch at the Southern Golf Club on Wednesday to celebrate National Volunteer Week. More than 100 of our volunteers attended, along with senior leaders from across Monash Health.

Dipak Sanghvi, Board Chair, Professor Andrew Stripp, Chief Executive, and Associate Professor Anjali Dhulia, Chief Medical Officer, all welcomed our volunteers and spoke about the integral contributions volunteers make to our community.

“Volunteers truly make Monash Health a better and more welcoming place to be,” Anjali said. “Whether big or small, everything you do creates such a positive difference to the care of our patients and their loved ones’ experience in their time of need. On behalf of all patients, their loved ones, and visitors – thank you.”

The speeches were followed by a presentation spotlighting our volunteers in action across their many roles at Monash Health, such as ward ambassadors, guides, consumer advisors, and spiritual care providers.

We want to say a big thank you to the Volunteer Services team who planned the special day to celebrate our volunteers.

It’s never too early or too late to volunteer, so if you or someone you know wants to make a difference with Monash Health, please reach out to volunteers@monashhealth.org.
