Thoughts from a BVRMC Volunteer...
"I have always thought that one of the prime benefits was that you became comfortable in the hospital surroundings, and got to know the people there. Come the time you had to be there to USE the hospital, you were more comfortable and less afraid of the institution because it was familiar!"
