UT Medical Center volunteers thanked at luncheon

Volunteers make a significant impact at The University of Toledo Medical Center through their service to more than 118 departments.

Pat Windham, who was the first president of the Satellites Auxiliary and now a board member of the organization, left, and Teresa Puglisi, corresponding secretary for the auxiliary’s advisory board, were among many volunteers who attended the luncheon.

UTMC has more than 250 active volunteers who provide an average of 4,000 hours of monthly service.

To thank them for their service, UTMC hosted a luncheon during National Volunteer Week in the Faculty Club at the Radisson Hotel on Health Science Campus.

“Volunteers are an integral part of UTMC,” said Amy Finkbeiner, service excellence operations manager at UT Health. “During National Volunteer Week, we recognize them for the contributions they make every day here at the hospital.”

According to Finkbeiner, volunteers provide an extra level of care and service to patients, understand and empathize with families and visitors, provide support services for hospital and University staff, and assist with research in various laboratories and facilities.

Speakers at the luncheon included Dave Morlock, CEO of UT Health and executive vice president of finance and administration; Tony Urbina, service excellence officer; Lynn Brand, president of the Satellites Auxiliary; and Mario Toussaint, senior director of operations for dining, retail and clinical nutrition.
