Hospice of Central Ohio serves our patients and families through the combined efforts of paid (employee) and unpaid (volunteer) staff members.  In the true spirit of the word “team,” all staff members share the privilege and responsibility of supporting people who are in the dying process as well as their family members and caregivers.

The paid and volunteer staff dynamic is one of mutual respect and collaboration, centered on the end-of-life wishes and needs of our patients and their families.   From patient care to office support and special projects, volunteers provide an essential perspective that makes our mission come to life. Across all lines of service, volunteers and employees work together to ensure that we are providing the best care possible to the people we serve every day.
