Features Health & Wellness Auxiliary wins 5-star award at NCHV Conference

For the ninth year in a row, Angel Medical Center’s Auxiliary has received the 5-Star Award, which is the highest level of recognition from the North Carolina Hospital Volunteers. At the Annual Conference in Greensboro, Arthur Chika, AMC’s Auxiliary President, received this award on behalf of the entire auxiliary. The 5-Star Award is scored on a variety of activities and programs that are completed over a one-year span. Angel Medical Center was the only hospital in the far west to receive this award.

“We are very proud of the great work and contributions that our volunteers provide to our hospital. They provide many hours and services to our patients,” said Jim Bross, CEO and president of Angel Medical Center. According to Jennifer Hollifield, director of Volunteer Services at AMC, the approximate 150 volunteers contribute around 30,000 volunteer hours each year, $25,000 in contributions to projects within the hospital, and several scholarships to staff to further their medical education. Some of the areas in which the volunteers contribute their time and talents are Angel’s Touch Gift Shop, Thrift Shop, reception desk, Medication Assistance Program, Pet Therapy, and many other areas of the hospital. Some volunteers contribute four hours a week while others contribute close to 40 hours a week.

“I am honored to work with such great volunteers and their dedication to our hospital is evident by the auxiliary receiving this highest award for 9 years in row,” said Hollifield.

Angel Medical Center is always looking for new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering at AMC, stop by the hospital and pick up an application or call Jennifer Hollifield at (828)349-6688.
