Abstract : It is determined that the most effective volunteer service program for General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital, Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri would be achieved by first, coordinating and integrating the carrying out of defined responsibilities of the Director of Hospital Volunteers with other administrative staff members of the hospital. Additionally, there must be developed and implemented new and innovating recruitment programs that are designed to and will attract additional volunteers of a variety of age groups. These new volunteer recruitment efforts must not only solicit and attract new volunteers from the on post military community but must also be targeted towards the largely untapped civilian community which surrounds the post. It is also concluded that for the hospital volunteer service program to be truly successful in meeting the needs of the patients and the professional staff it supports, accepted principals of management must be used in administering the program. These accepted principals of management should apply in all areas to include the 'hiring', 'training' evaluating and rewarding of volunteers.
