Q: If I served as a volunteer previously, why do I need to reapply?
A: Because it has been nearly two years since volunteer services have been fully operational, we will need all volunteers to reapply to ensure we are compliant with hospital regulations.  Everyone will be required to participate in an orientation/annual education session.
