Emanuel Medical Center volunteers were treated to a luncheon Nov. 18 at Spivey Pond House. Emanuel Medical Center Administration and Hospital Authority hosted the event in appreciation of the recent donation of the automatic doors and silk plants given to Emanuel Medical Center by the volunteers.
Beth Spencer welcomed the group and George Bell, volunteer, said the blessing. After the buffet lunch, Bob Via gave an update of the building project, physician recruitment and new Twin City Family Health Center. Clark Dixon reported the building project is 50 percent completed.
Special guests attending the luncheon included Dixon, Mitchell Fagler and Craig McNeely representing the Hospital Authority. Also included were Chuck Wofford, Peggy Corbin, Ginger Hall and Kathy Peebles.
McNeely expressed his appreciation on behalf of the Hospital Authority to the volunteers for their donation as well as the service they provide EMC throughout the year.
In closing, Spencer showed the group an engraved plaque to be displayed by the new doors indicating the volunteers donated them.
Emanuel Medical Center volunteers offer services throughout the facility including patient aid, gift shop, radiology transporter, clerical, emergency department, nursing home and information/escort. The EMC volunteers donated 4,500 hours of services last year.
