Volunteer of the Month: March 2018

Sandra Duvic

Since she started volunteering in January of 2016, Sandra Duvic has already made in indelible impression on our organization and the community. Beginning by volunteering one day a week in the Volunteer Services Department, Sandra then expanded to three days a week in three different areas. In fact, her “work” in Volunteer Services and the Emergency Department was so inspiring, when the EJ Women’s Clinic needed a volunteer one day a week, they specifically requested if Sandra could fill the role. She did and has not stopped impressing everyone with whom she comes in contact. Sandra, like so many of our volunteers, embodies the very best of our hospital, our community and our nation. She is selfless and committed to contributing to a greater good. We thank her for her commitment.

Upcoming Events
