a group of approximately 65 individuals who contribute between 3

both coming to and leaving MGH for care.
the years, this program has grown by leaps and bounds. This past fiscal year, the Discharge Service volunteers
reached an all-time high of 8,620 discharges.
In addition to working
with our patients, veteran volunteers train new Discharge and Emergency

of the various buildings that make up the MGH Main Campus.
