MONTEREY, Calif. — A warm welcome at the hospital front desk, friendly assistance at the Carol Hatton Breast Care Center, a ride to and from a medical appointment, a savory bowl of soup served up at the Fountain Court Café — volunteers make significant, positive impacts on the lives of Community Hospital’s patients and visitors.
