Saluting Our Volunteers

Lexington Medical Center’s volunteers celebrated Volunteer Week with a luncheon, as administrators, directors and managers applauded their dedication and commitment to service.

In 2015, more than 300 LMC volunteers spent more than 61,625 hours delivering flowers and cards, staffing information desks, facilitating pet therapy and assisting patients in departments throughout the hospital network. Here are some photos from our Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on April 13.

And the volunteers give more than their time. Through the Volunteer Auxiliary, they have purchased needed equipment for the hospital and awarded more than $75,000 in nursing scholarships this year to high school graduates and those pursuing continuing education in a nursing career. The volunteers have also raised money for the Emergency Care Fund, which helps employees in need. Thank you to our volunteers for all you do for LMC and our community.
