Hosipital volunteers go above and beyond

Critical to quality care at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, volunteers supplement the basic services of the hospital’s professional staff. These extras add to and benefit the comfort, care and happiness of patients. Auxiliary volunteers perform a wide variety of tasks, including providing personal patient services, such as delivering flowers, gifts, newspapers and mail and serving refreshments. They also escort patients, families or visitors throughout the hospital and assisting with department needs. Volunteers also staff the gift shop and reception areas.

The following volunteers have been elected to serve the auxiliary as the governing body for 2014: President Patty Kuehhirt; Vice President Roberta Proctor; membership Helen Conrey; Treasurer Doug Wight; Assistant Treasurer Pam Patten; Recording Secretary Gloria Crowley; and Correspondence Secretary Carol Hix.

At a recent luncheon, hour pins were awarded to Margaret Wilson for 1,000 hours; Betty Schafer for 1,500 hours; Marilyn Heald for 2,00 hours; and Kathy Ulmer for 5,500 hours. In addition, years of service pins awarded: five years of service to Carol Cobai, Pam Gilbert, Nancy Moll and Sharon Seck; 10 years of service to Joyce Bern, Carol Hauswirth, Jean Linder and Lorraine Maylum; 15 years of service to Helen Dempsey, Bonnie Saunders and Shirley Struck; and 20 years of service to Doreen Cubberly.
