Good Samaritan Volunteers Install New Leadership and Make Food Pantry Donation at January Luncheon
The Volunteers of Good Samaritan Health Center in Merrill gathered on January 21st to appoint new leaders and share some good company and goodwill.
Organized in 1966 the Volunteers serve and support the mission of Good Samaritan Health Center. Through service and fundraising, the Volunteers are an integral part of Good Samaritan and Merrill health care. Volunteers provide a wide variety of services to the patients and the hospital.
At its January recognition luncheon, Ramona Hornischer and Kathy Steckel were installed as co-presidents by Pudge Kimball, North Central Chair of the Partners of the Wisconsin Hospital Association. Members in attendance also collected non-perishable food items to benefit the Merrill Community Food Pantry.
“Our volunteers provide a vital service to our facility,” said Good Samaritan President Michael Hammer. “As the health care industry continues to change along with the rest of our economic state, it is reassuring to know that we have a stable group of partners by our side as we unite in delivering high quality health care to the Merrill community.
