Saint Mary's Hospital Celebrates Volunteers

WATERBURY, Conn. (June 14, 2013) – Saint Mary’s Hospital recently celebrated the dedication and commitment of 115 active volunteers at its Annual Volunteer Recognition Reception held at the Country Club of Waterbury. Together, these volunteers contributed 19,000 hours of service to the hospital this past year. More than 80 volunteers, managers and administrators attended the event, which was held in celebration of National Volunteer Week.

“We appreciate all that you do for Saint Mary’s,” said Chad W. Wable, President and Chief Executive Officer of Saint Mary’s Health System. “Whether it is to hold a patient’s hand, to deliver flowers, or to help someone get through a doorway, every special touch helps us to provide an exceptional experience for our patients.”

Recognition Awards were presented to 22 volunteers from throughout Greater Waterbury who achieved personal service milestones ranging from 500 to 21,500 hours. David Cuddeback of Waterbury, who volunteers in Saint Mary’s Emergency Department, was honored for the most hours served. This year, he achieved personal milestones of 21,000 and 21,500 hours of volunteer service.
