Volunteers serving with the Cy-Fair Medical Center Hospital were recognized this fall for surpassing 430,000 total hours of service to the hospital since it opened in 1983.
The volunteer program was started the same year the hospital opened. In the beginning, the program mainly involved service within the hospital, such as escorting patients, clerical duties and helping families. Over time the program grew to include more creative types of service, such as making crafts for patients and participating in community events.
Officials with Cy-Fair Medical Center said the hospital is fortunate to have such dedicated volunteers> Heather Sessions, the marketing and communications manager at the hospital, also oversees the volunteer program. She said she looks forward to continuing to grow the program moving forward.
