HRMC Celebrates Volunteers – Invites Others
April 22, 2022
Like many other organizations around the nation, Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is celebrating National Volunteer Week in appreciation of the many individuals who give of their time, talents and energy to help the hospital care for the people of this region.
National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 when President Richard Nixon signed an executive order establishing the week as an annual celebration focusing on the impact and power of volunteerism and service as an integral aspect of our civic leadership.
At HRMC, volunteers serve in many ways including through the Auxiliary and HRMC’s Community Hospice program. As a small token of the hospital’s appreciation, HRMC sent personalized thank-you cards with a cafeteria certificate to active auxiliary and hospice volunteers.
The purpose of the HRMC Auxiliary is to promote and advance the welfare of HRMC by serving patients and assisting with and contributing to charitable projects. Auxiliary volunteers work daily n hospital lounges, at the information desks and delivering and floral arrangements to patients. More volunteers are currently needed in a variety of roles and both men and women are invited and encouraged to share their talents.
Hospice volunteers assist with various activities, including working in the office, assisting with special events and being a companion in hospice patients’ homes to assist with household chores or provide caregiver relief. To become a hospice volunteer, contact Karen Decker, RN, at 605-353-6520.
Community members interested in volunteering are invited to an Auxiliary Spring Luncheon on Tuesday, May 17 at 12 noon in the HRMC Legacy Plaza Auditorium or contact Mati Felderman at 605-353-6565. Information and applications are also online at www.huronregional.org.
