Greenwich, CT (April 24, 2017) – More than 140 volunteers from Fairfield, CT and Westchester, NY counties were honored at the annual Greenwich Hospital Auxiliary luncheon to recognize the women and men who provide more than 50,000 hours of service each year. 

Norman G. Roth, Greenwich Hospital president and chief executive officer, said the hospital owed its reputation for offering an exceptional patient experience, in part, to the dedication of its volunteers. 

“Greenwich Hospital volunteers play a critical role in our ability to provide high-quality, compassionate care to our patients and their families. We greatly appreciate your commitment and feel honored to call you part of the Greenwich Hospital family,” Roth told the audience gathered at the Greenwich Country Club on April 21. 

Christine Randolph, Auxiliary president, and the Rev. Eddie Lopez, a spiritual care leader at the hospital, also thanked the volunteers for their commitment. 

The Auxiliary includes 692 adult and youth volunteers who serve at the main hospital campus and at the Greenwich Hospital Thrift Shop on Hamilton Avenue. “We’re fortunate to have such dedicated volunteers from all walks of life,” said Stacey Green, director of volunteers. 

The Greenwich Hospital event kicks off National Volunteer Appreciation Week from April 23 - 29.
