58,000 Hours and Counting: SRMC Celebrates National Volunteer Week – April 15-21

Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center is celebrating the contributions of its largest department this week, recognizing its dedicated team of volunteers during National Volunteer Week, 15-21 April. In the past 12 months, 358 volunteers have contributed in excess of 33,000 hours in more than 30 roles, including greeting guests, visiting patients, escorting customers and operating the SRMC Gift Shop. 

“Building and growing a hospital requires a significant effort and contribution by the community,” said Tim Tobin, President & CEO of Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center. “It speaks volumes about the dedication of our volunteers that they are willing to give to our patients, guests and staff even as they live very full lives of their own. Their dedication and enthusiasm to the cause raise the bar for everyone, and helps explain why SRMC ranks so highly in customer satisfaction.”

In addition to their daily responsibilities, SRMC volunteers were integral in the facility’s successful response to several notable events, including the May 2011 bus accident on I-95 and the August 2011 earthquake and brush with Tropical Storm Irene. Emblematic of the very region that they serve, SRMC volunteers represent more than 30 ZIP Codes, 18 area high schools and nearly every age from 14 to 85. As part of the week’s festivities, they will be honored at a celebratory event on Thursday evening.

“We are pleased to provide this opportunity to express appreciation for the invaluable assistance that volunteers offer to Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center,” continued Tobin. “On behalf of the physicians, administration and staff of SRMC, I want to thank this team for the welcome they have provided to the community and their continued commitment to making the best patient care experience possible.”

Since the opening of the hospital on June 7, 2010, SRMC volunteers have provided more than 58,000 hours of service, earning accolades from both local Congressmen, both Virginia Senators and Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell. The list of volunteer achievements includes more than 200 volunteers with 100 or more hours of service, and more than 75 volunteers whose contribution has exceeded 200 hours. More than one-tenth of today’s volunteers were part of the facility’s first month.
