The annual meeting of the Winona Health Auxiliary was held Jan. 19 at the Westfield Golf Club. Officers were elected, service chairs and co-chairs appointed, and 118 service awards were presented to individuals who had achieved recognition levels of service hours.
Volunteers were recognized for providing 35,320 hours of service to Winona Health this past year. Using the current U.S. average hourly value for volunteer time, that amounts to a gift equivalent of $754,435.20 in service time to Winona Health.
Pat Nolan, Auxiliary president, presented Rachelle Schultz, President and CEO of Winona Health, with a check totaling $30,000. This gift will be used toward the purchase of a new gastroscope and colonoscope for the Winona Health surgery department. An additional $23,500 was previously awarded for healthcare scholarships, and $3,000 was given to benefit Winona Health’s assisted-living residences. In addition, $32,650 was already presented from the proceeds of the Follies to be used for new vital sign monitors.
The grand total for auxiliary gifts in 2011 was $89,150.
