Our Award Winning Volunteers

The Volunteer Services Department held its annual recognition event on Friday, November 22 at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven to recognize outstanding achievements in volunteering. This year’s theme was “Around the World in 2,000 Ways” to celebrate the contributions of our 2,000 plus volunteers. Upon entering the ballroom decorated with flags and props from around the globe, volunteers were invited to participate in a raffle for prizes donated by local businesses, followed by lunch featuring international cuisine and the presentation of awards.

More than 320 volunteers, guests and Cleveland Clinic caregivers enjoyed the awards ceremony. Chief Experience Officer James Merlino, MD, welcomed all attendees and recognized the importance of the role Cleveland Clinic volunteers and employees alike share in providing care to patients and their families. Cleveland Clinic Chief of Staff Joseph Hahn, MD, also spoke to the importance of volunteerism at Cleveland Clinic, saying that our Ambassadors fill a crucial role that enables our talented care teams to do what they do best.
