Munson Medical Center Honors Its Volunteers
Luncheon on April 22 recognizes National Volunteer Week
 
Munson Medical Center is paying tribute to its hard working team of nearly 400 volunteers with a Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on Sunday, April 22, in recognition of National Volunteer Week.

All of the hospital’s active volunteers are invited to attend this special event from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Hagerty Center, 715 E. Front St. in Traverse City. Each volunteer may invite a spouse or guest to the luncheon. “Munson Medical Center volunteers play an important part of providing nationally recognized service in Traverse City,” said Theresa Stachnik, manager of Volunteer Services. “Every year, the volunteers are among the hospital’s strongest supporters both onsite and in the community. We greatly appreciate all they do.”
 
During 2011, 378 volunteers provided more than 50,000 hours of service to the hospital. Among their varied duties, Munson Medical Center volunteers not only greet visitors at the hospital, but help transport patients and assist people with finding their way. They also staff the registration desk at Munson Manor, help in the Emergency Department, operate the Munson Gift Shop, and assist in various other services.
 
As a group, the volunteers also have donated more than $2 million to Munson Medical Center projects over the years, including $700,000 to the Munson Manor Hospitality House and a $25,000 pledge to Hospice.
 
To RSVP for the luncheon, volunteers should call Cathi Consolino at (231) 935-5129 by April 9.
