KATY, TEXAS (April 23, 2015)

Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital recently celebrated its volunteers during National Volunteer Week. Established in 1974 by President Richard Nixon, National Volunteer Week was created to recognize and celebrate the efforts of volunteers. Since then, the original emphasis on celebration has widened. The week has become a nationwide effort to urge people to make a difference by getting out and volunteering in their communities.

At the hospital, volunteers do make a difference. From comforting patients in their time of need to answering phones or providing directions, there is a job for everyone.
