Concerned Hearts is an organization comprised of individuals who either have had treatment for a heart condition or have had a family member treated for a heart condition. This group is responsible for staffing the reception desk located near the Intensive Care Unit. Concerned Hearts members also conduct fundraisers during the year to help support our Cardiac Care Center. When new patients arrive, members show them and their families videos describing the surgery, recovery and their future lifestyle. Concerned Hearts members also visit patients during their stay to answer questions and provide insights about the recovery process.
Members volunteer in several ways, such as:
- Heart Hugger Pillow Makers: A group of volunteers cut, sew and stuff hundreds of pillows every year for cardiac patients. Patients hug this pillow as they cough as part of therapy following heart surgery.
- Visitation Committee: A group of volunteers who visit pre- and post-operative cardiac surgery patients and are available to answer questions and provide information.
- Intensive Care Volunteer Desk: The ICU volunteer desk is staffed by volunteers 12 hours a day. These volunteers give families an understanding and assurance that the long hours during the surgery will indeed benefit not only the patient but the entire family.
