This is National Volunteer Week and while our volunteers are not at the Hospital right now, we still want to salute and thank them for everything they do at WDMH. Our volunteers are an essential part of our care team, supporting patients, families and WDMH staff in almost every area of the Hospital. We can’t wait to welcome them back soon!

“Even when they are not at WDMH, their work continues with fundraising, online Gift Shoppe sales, and more,” says Cholly Boland, CEO. “We are so grateful to have them as part of our team.”

In fact, the WDMH Auxiliary has recently donated $75,543.48 to cover the cost a specialized disinfection system and the renovations required to use it. The system supports one of the most frequently used probes in Diagnostic Imaging and the Emergency Department, transvaginal ultrasounds. “The new system supports safe transportation to the separate cleaning room and limits exposure for patients and staff to any disinfectant chemicals,” explains Clinical Manager Shannon Horsburgh. “Thanks to the Auxiliary, we can now offer more of these procedures for women in our community.”
Happy Volunteer Week!
