Medical Center Volunteers Recognized for Service – Looking for New Members


Sonora Regional Medical Center recently honored its volunteers with an appreciation luncheon and awarded several volunteers for their significant contributions. Those recognized have logged from 100 to 25,000 hours of service and 10 to 30 years of volunteering.

Many of those honored at the appreciation luncheon describe their time spent volunteering as the most pleasant part of their lives. “You keep up your skills and learn new ones,” explains Martha Cover, who has been volunteering at the Medical Center for over 30 years. “It fills a social need – you meet and work with nice people, keep a schedule and connect with others. Truly, volunteering is a healthy habit."

The Volunteer Program at Sonora Regional Medical Center is currently accepting applications for new members. Anyone who has a few hours per week and enjoys helping their friends and neighbors is encouraged to apply. Applications can be found at or by asking any of the volunteers on duty.
