ANGOLA, Ind. — Cameron Memorial Community Hospital celebrated the contributions of its 67 auxiliary members (volunteers) recently at the group’s annual appreciation luncheon, which takes place as part of National Hospital Week festivities.

Auxiliary Supervisor Michael Booher addressed the group saying, “It is hard to believe that we have been in the new facility for 18 months. We have noticed a lot of changes in the volunteer areas of the hospital, some of which are still evolving.

"I cannot thank you enough for the time and service you give through volunteering,” he continued.

The Cameron Hospital Auxiliary made many significant contributions to the organization in 2015. This group donated a total of 13,363 volunteer hours for the year, which equates to 334 weeks of full-time work.

Those who are still active in the auxiliary have given a collective cumulative total of 116,551 hours of service. They also contributed over $30,000 to the hospital this past year for the purchase of valuable tools and equipment.

“Our auxiliary group is a very important piece to the Cameron customer service puzzle,” said Connie McCahill, president and CEO.. “These incredible volunteers not only give of their time, but more importantly show kindness and compassion to our patients and guests, helping to fulfill our mission and live our values.”
