Mayers Memorial Hospital District just celebrated National Volunteer Week! Established in 1974, National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their hospital and community.

Their stories can serve to inspire others to find ways to take action that creates change.

MMHD and Mayers Intermountain Healthcare Foundation is deeply appreciative of all the hours and the hard work our volunteers donate to Mayers Memorial Hospital and the Hospice program, Mayers Gift Shop, and Lucky Finds Thrift and Gift.
