I have volunteered with the East Tennessee Children's Hospital for a few years now and I have always found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences. I really enjoy helping the children out and seeing them grow. It is probably the best place that I have ever volunteered at. I feel as though the staff really appreciates me being there and all of the help that I have been to them. I also think that the parents of the children are appreciative of all I do. I will continue to volunteer at the East Tennessee Children's Hospital because the experience continues to be rewarding and I enjoy it thoroughly.

They are great at calming down kids and parents. I brought my son in with a broken arm and they were very nice and reassured both of us. Everything was taken care of pretty quickly. If I ever have to bring any of my kids to a hospital in the future, this will be the one I go to.

I've volunteered at ETCH several times, and I really love the atmosphere. Everyone is very friendly and caring and do their best to help everyone who comes in. When I have children, this is where I will take them if the need ever arises! Great place filled with great people doing great things.

I have to take my two sons here quite often, and everything always goes smoothly every time. The nurses are amazing and always cheer them up, and everything is always taken care of quickly and professionally. They're very attentive and make sure we have everything we need. My boys and I are very lucky to have such a great children's hospital close by!

I never want to take my daughter anywhere else! We've been here twice now and everyone is very kind and competent. The staff are very friendly and do their best to ease my daughter's fears as well as my own. Everything always goes without a hitch. This is an amazing children's hospital with amazing people.

The Child Life staff are the sweetest people on the planet. They played with our little girl and she had so much fun even though she was sick. She wasn't scared at all, and that's all thanks to the doctors and nurses at Children's Hospital.

My niece was in the PICU for 7 weeks and the doctors and nurses at East Tennessee Children's Hospital made our family feel like we were part of their family. The care was great and all of the staff was friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. Best of all, they took care of my little niece and she's home, happy and healthy!

I volunteered with staff of Children's Hospital at a summer camp for diabetics this year and shadowed an educator in the Diabetes Clinic. I am a school nurse and work with children and families that rely on Children's Hospital when their kids are first diagnosed as well as follow up visits to help them manage their condition. They are excellent at helping kids and families through such a difficult transition and show continued care and support as the children and their family transition through many stages. They are also a wonderful resource to the community. I receive their newsletter which helps me get reliable health information out to the families I serve at my school, and I plan to attend one or more of the educational classes they offer soon. I am very thankful and appreciate the wonderful care kids receive at Children's Hospital. As one more thing to add, my daughter spent a week in Children's ICU when she was born due to complications and the staff were wonderful and caring--that was 16 years ago but I still remember the loving care she got at that time, so I can speak as both a parent and an invested community member on their behalf!
