A group of the Dosher Hospital volunteers came together following their recent monthly meeting to commemorate the organization’s recent donations to the departments and services of Dosher Memorial Hospital.
Several hospital departments were the recipients of the Dosher volunteers’ generosity over the past five months. Volunteers donated a new centrifuge for the hospital’s laboratory and two elliptical exercise machines for cardiac rehabilitation.
In addition, a new awning was purchased for the Dosher volunteer flea market, and a therapeutic tub and lift chair were purchased to help care for the residents of Dosher Nursing Center. Stuffed animals were also bought in to be given to children being treated in Dosher’s emergency department and the operating room, and activity supplies were purchased for the Nursing Center. In all, the Dosher Hospital volunteers donated $39,478.37 during the last five months.
“Volunteerism has been a pillar upon which Dosher’s long history of service is based,” said Edgar Haywood III, hospital president and CEO. “Between the thousands of hours of service donated by our volunteers each year and the monetary donations of the group to the hospital time and time again, the generosity of our hospital’s volunteers never ceases to amaze us.”
The Dosher Hospital volunteers primarily raise funds through the operation of the Hospital Gift Shop and the Flea Market in downtown Southport. Over the years, the volunteers have raised more than $1.25 million to support Dosher Memorial Hospital.
