January 24, 2019
Schneck Medical Center recently announced its Guild volunteers have given over 20,000 hours of service to the hospital in 2018—the highest in Guild history.
“For more than 60 years, the Schneck Guild volunteers have given of themselves helping our staff provide excellent service and care to our patients,” stated Warren Forgey, President/CEO of Schneck Medical Center. “They have played a significant role in our accomplishments and their service is valued and appreciated by the Schneck staff and more importantly by the patients that we serve.”
Volunteers serve in many areas of the hospital including the gift shop, admitting and information desks, driving the parking lot shuttles, the emergency department, chaplaincy, hospice, and various other hospital departments.
The Guild is also very active in fundraising. The group has donated $153,779.19 in 2018 and sustains many projects and programs including:
  • Two parking lot shuttles, which have been in high demand during our recent construction phase
  • Junior Volunteer program
  • Kim Quilleon Varnell Junior Volunteer Memorial Scholarship
  • Pediatric toy totes for all pediatric admissions
  • Cancer baskets for newly diagnosed cancer patients
  • Prayer shawls for Hospice patients
  • Patient charity fund which benefits a variety of patients’ needs
  • And, much more.
“Our volunteers are simply priceless,” said Amy Cockerham, Volunteer Manager. “We are inspired by the sacrifices they make and by the gift of their time and talents. It’s nothing less than impressive.”
Volunteer positions are currently available days, evenings, and on weekends. For more information about volunteer opportunities at Schneck Medical Center, please call Amy Cockerham, Volunteer Manager, at 812-522-0439.
