Shore Health Recognizes the Value of Volunteers

Robin Hood Volunteers (400 x 178)The need for medical care is a need that most everyone will experience at some point throughout the course of a lifetime. Whether it is routine, preventive care, diagnostic testing or specialized medical care required in a more serious or emergent situation, receiving quality medical care and treatment is the expectation of most people when such a need arises.

Rightfully so, most people correlate quality medical care with the medical professionals providing it or perhaps the facility in which the care is provided; however, it is rare that one stops to think about the community members who make that care possible through their support of local health care programs and services, both financially and through their dedicated efforts of volunteerism. In most local community hospitals, such support is provided by auxiliary members, often referred to as “The Pink Ladies” for the bright pink jackets they wear while on duty, although most hospital auxiliaries presently have both male and female members, volunteers and representation on their boards of directors. Shore Health takes pride in the support of its two very active hospital auxiliaries whose members work tirelessly to help achieve the System’s mission to deliver exceptional care, every day, which is why various volunteer appreciation events have taken place in recent weeks, in celebration of National Volunteer Month, annually observed in April.

Since its establishment, the Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton, MD, Inc. has been instrumental in raising funds for various hospital projects and services. Auxiliary funds are primarily raised through sales at Maggie’s Gift Shop, located at the hospital, and at the Bazaar at 121 Federal Street, which accepts donations of gently used clothing, accessories and small household items that are resold at reasonable prices. Both retail establishments are managed and staffed by auxiliary volunteers. In addition, auxiliary volunteers are a resource in clinical areas both at the hospital and offsite, providing assistance to staff members, patients and visitors in multiple areas. Free blood pressure screenings are also provided to the community by Memorial Hospital at Easton Auxiliary volunteers every Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. until Noon at the Diagnostic and Imaging Center located at 10 Martin Court in Easton.

The Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary has worked to raise funds for Dorchester General Hospital since its founding, primarily through retail sales at the Hospitality Shop, located at the hospital, and The Robin Hood Shop, a thrift shop located at 416 Race Street in Cambridge, which recently celebrated its 56th year as a presence in the community. Auxiliary volunteers manage and staff both retail establishments. Auxiliary members also provide free blood pressure screenings at the hospital twice weekly on Tuesday and Friday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Volunteers can also be seen assisting staff, patients and visitors in multiple areas of the hospital.

It was once said that “The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.” For more information about volunteer commitment opportunities at either Dorchester General Hospital or the Memorial Hospital at Easton, visit www.shorehealth.org.
