St. Mary Medical Center honors, awards volunteers

Volunteers at St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart have given more than 188,200 hours of their time to help the hospital carry out its mission — a fact for which they were recognized and awarded during a luncheon on April 25 to mark National Volunteer Week.

“Each day I see you at the hospital I am reminded of the true meaning of giving. Your talents and time are a true gift to St. Mary Medical Center, Community Healthcare System, and the community at large,” said Milt Triana, administrator of St. Mary Medical Center.

The 260 volunteers also were honored with remarks from Hobart Mayor Linda Buzinec; William Schenck, President of the St. Mary Medical Center Board of Directors; John Mybeck, Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer for Community Healthcare System, and John Gorski, Senior Vice President of Hospital Operations for Community Healthcare System.
