Thank You to North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal Vol­un­teers

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - New­port, VT

Thep­a­tients and fam­i­lies as well as staff of North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal ap­pre­ci­ate our vol­un­teers all year long, and last week the group was rec­og­nized for their ded­i­ca­tion and many hours of ser­vice at a vol­un­teer din­ner pre­pared and hosted by the hos­pi­tal’s own food and nu­tri­tion depart­ment.

Direc­tor of Vol­un­teers, Mer­ri­lyn Barry, proudly ac­knowl­edged each and ev­ery vol­un­teer in at­ten­dance, award­ing recog­ni­tion gifts to all. “This is the best group of vol­un­teers any­one could ask for,” she added. “They are so com­mit­ted to their work sched­ule. A cou­ple of weeks ago a long­stand­ing vol­un­teer had a med­i­cal emer­gency, and as she was get­ting into the am­bu­lance, she told her daugh­ter, don’t for­get to call Mer­ri­lyn – it doesn’t look like I’ll be work­ing to­mor­row!”

Pres­i­dent & CEO Clau­dio Fort and Chief Fi­nan­cial Of­fi­cer An­dre Bis­son­nette voiced their ap­pre­ci­a­tion at the din­ner to the high en­ergy crowd in the hos­pi­tal’s cafe­te­ria. Clau­dio added, “you are all the back­bone of our op­er­a­tions here, from greet­ing pa­tients and fam­i­lies at the front desk and sur­gi­cal wait­ing room to as­sist­ing staff in the dial­y­sis cen­ter, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.” Pic­tured here with their ac­cu­mu­lated hours of ser­vice are: 1st row L to R-
