WMC honors volunteers during National Volunteer Week, April 10-16

Released: 04/11/16

If you have brought your newborn home with a cozy cap, purchased a stylish handbag in the Gift Shop or sent flowers to a loved one, you have been touched by a Winneshiek Medical Center volunteer.

Winneshiek Medical Center has over 125 active volunteers who are present in many areas, including the information desk, Auxiliary-run Gift Shop, and at special events. Additionally, volunteers provide hand-crafted items for patients, help with mailings, share their gardening talents and sit on the Board of Trustees, Auxiliary Board and Foundation Board.

“Winneshiek Medical Center’s mission is to be a lifelong community partner improving the health and well-being of those we serve through patient-centered collaboration worthy of the trust our patients place in us. Our volunteers help us achieve our mission every day,” says Karla Bakken, volunteer coordinator. “They give of their time and talents for one purpose – to enhance the care provided to the community. We are deeply appreciative of their willingness to serve.”

Winneshiek Medical Center volunteers will be recognized for 2015 hours of service at an April celebration. To learn more about the volunteer program at Winneshiek Medical Center, call the Volunteer Services department at 563-387-3036 or visit www.winmedical.org/volunteering.
