In honor of National Healthcare Volunteer Week on April 10-16, Campbell County Health is highlighting some of our volunteers.
Meet Robin Bailey. Some of you may recognize Robin from her work in Sen. Mike Enzi's office. Robin retired nearly two years ago, and decided that she wanted to stay involved with her community during her retirement. That's when she started volunteering for CCH.
Robin spends time playing bingo with Pioneer Manor residents in Unit 5 and in the Memory Care Unit as well as helps out at the Information Desk in the Main Lobby at Campbell County Health by welcoming patients and visitors. Robin is also on Campbell County Healthcare Foundation's
Legacy Advisory Board (formerly the Pioneer Manor Advisory Board), which works to improve residents' quality of life at the facility, and helps with fundraising for resident activities. Recently the board has given all residents carnations at Valentine's Day, and helped purchase a new ice cream machine.
"Volunteering with CCH is enjoyable and very informative—I know where most of the doctors and services are in the organization and can help people find their way, and have fun doing it," says Robin. "Volunteering here is a great way to give back to my community."
Thank you, Robin for all that you do for CCH! We appreciate you.
