With 2,000 hours of devoted service over a 5-year span, January’s East Jefferson General Hospital Volunteer of the Month is Jill Bayer, a dedicated member of the ground link information desk.

A participant in the Volunteer Advisory Council, Bayer considers her job to be one of the best in the hospital, delivering flowers and plants to our patients, which she always does with a friendly and upbeat attitude.

Along with her assigned duties, Bayer also makes herself available to answer any questions from visitors, locates patient room numbers, answers the phone and even assists other departments with folding and mailing envelopes.

Bayer, along with our other dedicated volunteers, are helping EJGH make it great every day!
