Healing Words offers patients of UAB Hospital a friendly visitor who can read books or magazines out loud, talk, and engage with during their stay. Healing Words volunteers can come to the assigned unit between 9am and 6pm on their assigned day. Most Healing Words service lasts for around an hour, sometimes it is a little more, sometimes a little less. Books and magazines can be picked up, by appointment only, from the Volunteer Office (Spain Wallace W102) Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 4:30pm. If you are coming outside of these times, please bring several books/magazines/newspapers. Our Surgical Intensive Care Unit does not allow reading from electronic devices so please prepare accordingly.
