Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) has many wonderful volunteers but four stand out because of their long term commitments to helping at CMH. They are part of the CMH Auxiliary.
Doris Sprague (32 years) works the Gift Shop, and Ginny Basso (48 years) and Judy Miller (37 years) as Flyers and Desk Receptionists and Pat Utter (42 years) works as a Flyer at the Reception desk.
There are numerous opportunities offered to CMH Volunteers. Among them is the Maternity Dept… Including working with preemie babies in the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit, (NICU). Also offered is Same Day Surgery, Post Anesthetic Care Unit, (PACU), Emergency Dept, Book cart, Pharmacy and the Sewing Projects. These are just some of the departments that need volunteers.
Why do these women volunteer? They all answered the same; it’s giving back to the community. “There’s nothing like the feeling of helping others” said Ginny Basso.
Judy Miller Past President, CMH Auxiliary stated “Everyone in the Auxiliary is looking forward to our new hospital. We are so excited to have all private rooms for our patients. Will it mean more work for everyone? The answer is yes, that’s why we are actively looking for new Volunteers. Please join use in helping others, there’s no other feeling quite like it.”
