GILLETTE, WY –
Robin Bailey is the recipient of the first Wyoming Volunteer of the Year Award from the
Wyoming Hospital Association (WHA). The new award, presented at the WHA annual conference on September
5 in Laramie, recognizes the contributions that healthcare volunteers
make to their organizations and communities.
Robin is a regular volunteer at Campbell County Health in Gillette, helping
out at the Information Desk at
Campbell County Memorial Hospital and volunteering with residents at
The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center—she also sits on The Legacy Advisory Board. At CCMH, Robin greets
patients, arranges valet parking, gives directions to guests and patients,
and helps with office needs. At The Legacy, Robin assists staff with bingo
and crafts, serves lunches during special holidays, and takes residents
to Wal-Mart to shop.
She also volunteers with the Campbell County Senior Center (CCSC), and
is the chair of the Campbell County Senior Citizens Foundation Board.
There, Robin serves lunches, greets, helps with mailings and serves on
the Senior Center’s Election Forum Committee. Robin delivers food
to school children for the nonprofit Blessings in a Backpack program,
and helps NewLife Gillette Church with their Special Prom, an evening
for those with disabilities.
“When Robin walks into our facility (The Legacy), the joy factor
increases between the residents and Administration,” says
Jonni Belden, RN, Vice President of Continuing Health Services. “She is a delight
to work with, and she is so gentle and kind to all the residents. Each
of our staff, volunteers and families know Robin by sight and by name.”
