    All

    I have a question. Please explain it to me. Thank you very much.
    As we know, if subject is pronoun, the position of “all” in sentence is:
    - Standing in front of the verb
    - Standing after modal verb
    Why do we use “all” in the below sentence?
    The hospital will greatly appreciate all you can do for the patients.
    Can I rewrite it as? The hospital will greatly appreciate you can all do for the patients.

    You can say "...appreciate what you all can do..." but that will change the meaning.
