Upper Valley Medical Center extended a thank you to its volunteers during the Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on April 21.
During 2010, more than 180 volunteers completed 30,815 hours of service to UVMC. Contributing to this achievement were 80 volunteers honored at the luncheon. Each had achieved a new milestone in their cumulative hours of service.
The volunteers were thanked by Tom Parker, UVMC President/CEO; Robin Fisher, Manager of Volunteer Services; and Kathie Scarbrough, UVMC Foundation Executive Director.
Parker said each volunteer’s contribution is vital to the organization’s performance.
“What you do is more important than service. It is about creating an experience for patients,” Parker said. “Time and again, patients say what matters the most is how we make them feel. We could not deliver, fulfill our mission without you.”
Among those honored were Olive Beanblossom for 20,000 hours; Margaret Attenweiler, 12,500 hours; Betty Gerken, 11,000 hours; Dorie Perry and Eleanor Sweigart, 8,000 hours; Norm Warner, 6,500 hours; Helen Curry, 6,000 hours; Dee Collins, Kathryn Mote, Georgiana Weaver, 5,000 hours; and Marjorie Brown, 4,500 hours.
Also earning recognition were Jacqueline Jenkins and Libby McCabe, 4,000 hours; Bill Christie, Robert Jenkins, Gail Turner, Becky Voisinet, 3,500 hours; Gwen Karr, Wade Leech, Kathleen Putnam, Mildred Stone, 3,000 hours; and Liz DeWeese, Sally Leech, Marilyn Stapleton, 2,500 hours.
Five volunteers were recognized for 2,000 hours of service; four for 1,500 hours; nine for 1,000 hours; nine for 500 hours; 10 for 300 hours; and 15 for 100 hours.
For their volunteer services, Nick Cleaver, Jeremy Cotner, Brittany Kindell and Melissa Schultz were awarded Community Service certificates.
The week of April 17-23 was National Health Care Volunteer Week.
