Hospital Honors Volunteers


More than 90 volunteers attended the appreciation luncheon hosted by Tillamook County General Hospital (TCGH) on May 1 in the Wirick Hall at the Tillamook Church of the Nazarene. Featuring a theme of "Volunteers, Heart of the Community," and gospel music by the TCGH Quartet, the event honored the gifts of time and talent contributed by Faith in Action, Hospice, Hospital and Hope Chest volunteers.

Service statistics from these groups tell a story of dedication to the mission of excellence in community health care. In 2007, close to 10,000 hours were donated by 120 individuals serving both within the hospital as Hospice volunteers and out in the community as Faith in Action and Hospice volunteers. The hospital's Gift Shop, which is staffed by volunteers, supported hospital programs with net proceeds of $23,000.

Hospital staff invite the community to join them in thanking these volunteers who do so much year-round to enrich the lives of others and help to financially support programs of the hospital in our community!
