Jim Mitchell was honored as Terrebonne General Medical Center’s (TGMC) 2016-17 Volunteer of the Year at a luncheon, held during National Healthcare Volunteer Week, honoring the men and women who do volunteer work at TGMC.
“Mr. Jim is an asset to TGMC, and truly deserves the recognition of Volunteer of the Year,” said Josh Faucheux, Guest Services Manager. “His dedication and professionalism with patients show he truly cares about TGMC and the community.”
Mitchell volunteers in the TGMC Blood Donor Center, assisting with administrative tasks, transporting blood to the hospital, and anything else staff members may need. As a retired high school teacher and counselor, Mitchell enjoys being able to connect with the community on a personal level.
“I want to congratulate Mr. Jim Mitchell on his recognition as Volunteer of the Year. Our volunteers are truly dedicated to helping TGMC’s staff members, patients, and their families. Over the past year, our volunteers have given more than 7,500 hours of service, and we cannot thank them enough,” said Phyllis Peoples, president and CEO.
In addition to their daily responsibilities, volunteers assist with gift sales at the hospital. Funds from the sales directly benefit patient-facing improvements. In 2016, the volunteers raised $20,000 to make the purchase of six AED devices possible.
