Hospital volunteer service is traditionally recognized for its contribution to patient care, and it is gaining recognition for strengthening the hospital as a community enterprise. Volunteer workers, the uniformed inservice corps, are an integral part of the total manpower in any hospital, regardless of its size or whether it is a government or voluntary enterprise. For these reasons, volunteer service is an accepted part of management responsibility. This service in the contemporary hospital needs the continuing direct concern of hospital administration, a qualified salaried director, and the sustained interest of a progressive auxiliary. This is particularly true in urban communities in which hospitals are increasingly complex in function, patterns of service, and organization.
