Our Perioperative Services division truly could not function without the assistance of our wonderful Family Waiting Room volunteers and Perioperative Escorts. Today, the Perioperative department was kind enough to host a recognition luncheon for all surgery volunters. (A special thanks to Perioperative Administrative Assistant Kim Bennett for her work in arranging this event!)
The following surgery staff members attended the event to express their thanks to department volunteers:
Gloria Drake, Senior Director, Perioperative Services
Pat Buzzell, Patient Care Manager, OR
Laurie Young, Patient Care Manager, Pre-Op/PACU
Dr. David Schmeling, Chief of Surgery
At the event, Gloria read two quotes about volunteers that sum up our feelings exactly:
1. “Those who can, do. Those who can do MORE, volunteer!”
2. “Volunteers don’t get paid…not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless!”
Thank you, surgery volunteers, for all of your incredible work!
