Crozer-Keystone Volunteers

The Heart of the Hospital

  •  Bunny has been here since 2005. Bunny volunteers in every department. She is not assigned to one specific area but all areas.
  • Frieda Lenthe is the volunteer librarian at Springfield Hospital.

Crozer-Keystone’s volunteers are a dedicated group of over 300 people, who have a crucial impact not just on our patients, but on our hospitals. Most volunteers are recent retirees and local students. They volunteer in many different departments, including gift shops, pediatrics, pharmacy, admissions, discharges, escort services, fundraising activities and cancer centers.

Volunteering leaves an impact not only on Crozer-Keystone’s hospitals and patients, but also on the volunteers. If you ask volunteers to name their favorite or most rewarding part of working at the hospital, they pause, take a moment to think and then — with a big smile — tell their story.

Crozer-Keystone is happy to recognize all of our volunteers for their dedication and commitment to the Health System.

In Their Words

Most volunteers say there is nothing better than knowing they have helped someone in need. It doesn’t matter if a volunteer commits to an hour or four hours; it makes a difference to the ones who are being helped.

Scott Carlile enjoys connecting with patients and employees…

Scott Carlile is a volunteer at Delaware County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) escorting patients to their locations. “This is the best job I’ve ever had. I’ve made a lot of friends who are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life, and it’s great to know that I’m helping out our patients.”

Karen Harper loves working with the community…

Karen Harper is a volunteer at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in the Crozer Corner. “I love working in the gift shop. I enjoy the social interaction with the employees and the community. Working with the public is great and I love it here.”

Barbara Aiello enjoys working alongside the other volunteers…

“I do what I can to help the volunteers and the director, Janet Kalup, to do what they do. Taylor Hospital Volunteers are like a family. We care for each other and the staff that we support. Even when we don’t feel like coming in, we are all very glad we did. It is very rewarding to give back to the community.”

Springfield Hospital’s volunteers agree that it is all about working with the people…

Claire Shetter says, “I enjoy being able to give back to the community. I like to smile and make people happy. I especially like helping out the Springfield staff.” Jean Milione agrees with Clair that, “It is all about the people and feeling like I'm helping people. I don't know what I would if I couldn't volunteer.” Bunny Implazo agrees. She loves volunteering and especially working with the people.
