Volunteers are needed for several workdays at Wooster Community Hospital’s GreenPoint Garden. The first is a strawberry planting session on April 14th. We also need people to weed and do general gardening on your own schedule. Or, if you can commit half a day a week please join our jolly harvest crew. Just want an opportunity to commune with nature? Come with us – it’s all about “naturally” building a healthy community.

"We Count On You. I believe it was Albert Einstein who said, "Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.” Although Einstein was right, we still do a lot of counting at Wooster Community Hospital (WCH). In part, our counting is a reflection of one of our Board member’s favorite adages - if you can’t count (measure) it, you can’t improve it. We are committed to improving what we do and demonstrating this improvement to our patients and customers.
