Volunteers Recognized for Making a Difference

Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber’s (CSSMCW) annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner was held on April 18 at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Windber. A total of 98 hospice volunteers, 63 hospital volunteers, and 10 Windber Health Care Foundation Auxiliary members were recognized for their hard work and dedication to the non-profit hospital.

Guest volunteer speakers were Rev. Betsy Statler, a volunteer of 17 years who serves has the hospital and hospice chaplain, and Rosi Sekerak, who visits patients in facilities and helps with continuing education for the volunteer program.

During the past year, the volunteers served 13,570 hours, which equates to an estimated cost savings of more than $345,000 for CSSMCW. We truly appreciate all that our volunteers do and the difference they make to patients and staff each and every day.
