“As a community-focused hospital, we are so grateful for our volunteers who generously give not only their time, but also make significant financial contributions to help support our not-for-profit mission,” said Anne Platt, CEO of Sutter Amador Hospital. “With these investments in the hospital, the auxiliary helps ensure quality medical care for our region.”
The Sutter Amador Hospital Auxiliary’s donation will be used to purchase a new triage procedure chair in the Emergency Department and a newborn cardiac monitor in the Family Birth Center.
“Our volunteers are valuable members of our hospital community who help ensure patients and their families have a wonderful experience at our facility,” said Laura Cooper, R.N., manager of the Family Birth Center at SAH. “We are so touched and grateful for their donation.”
“In the past 10 years, we have donated more than $510,000 to the hospital for the purchase of new medical equipment and other materials needed to advance patient care services,” said Bob Mosblech, president of the Sutter Amador Hospital Auxiliary. “Volunteering at the hospital is an important part of my life and I’m privileged to see the impact that we have in the hospital and in the community.”
With more than 60 active hospital volunteers, the auxiliary team donates more than 15,000 hours each year to the hospital staffing the hospital’s gift store, concierge cart, information desk, thrift shop and provide assistance to various departments throughout the hospital.
