Lexington Medical Center’s volunteers celebrated Volunteer Week with administrators, directors and managers applauding their dedication and commitment to service at their annual luncheon on April 16.
In 2017, Lexington Medical Center volunteers spent more than 59,340 hours delivering flowers and cards, staffing information desks, facilitating pet therapy and assisting patients in departments throughout the hospital network.
And the volunteers gave more than their time. Through the Volunteer Auxiliary, they purchased needed equipment for the hospital, including 3-D mammography technology through the hospital’s Foundation, and awarded $81,000 in nursing scholarships to high school graduates and those pursuing continuing education in a nursing career. Lexington Medical Center volunteers also raised money for the Emergency Care Fund, which helps employees in need.
Congratulations to Volunteer of the Year Larry Rohr and Community Volunteer of the Year Norman Adams.
