Genesys Volunteers donate $110,000 to Genesys

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) During a holiday luncheon held to thank the Genesys volunteers for their support throughout the year, the group of some 570 men and women presented Genesys with a check for $110,000.
This money is the second installment of a $300,000 pledge to purchase robotic surgery technology for Genesys.

The Genesys volunteers - since the opening of Genesys Regional Medical Center at Health Park - have donated more than $5 million - all to benefit patient care. Funds have been used for the Harry and Sally Swartz Special Care Nursery Level II B, the Paul J. Rocky Roll Cardiac Rapid Diagnostic Center, courtesy vans to pick up and drop off visitors, a surgical navigation system, anesthesia machines, inpatient rehabilitation renovations, special surgical tables, new laboratory equipment, and much more!

Volunteers conduct dozens of fundraisers throughout the year to raise this money.

In addition to financial support, this group of men and women contribute countless hours of time and service to Genesys. You will find volunteers assisting in some 40 areas of the hospital - the information desk, the Acorn Gift and Floral Shop, registration, Genesys joint camp, surgery waiting areas, spiritual care, Special Care Nursery (grandma service), pet therapy, laboratory, food and nutrition, courtesy van, and many more areas.

"Our volunteers bring so much to Genesys and our patients," reports Karen VanCura, director of Volunteer Services. "They make patients and families feel welcome when they enter the hospital by offering a smile and a warm greeting, by personally escorting them to their destination, by sitting with them in their bedroom and offering a strong listening ear, by helping them choose their meals for the next day, or by helping them navigate through the hospital. The skills they bring are endless and limitless."
