At a luncheon last week, St. John's Episcopal Hospital saluted the men and women who help keep things moving at the facility every day - the volunteers who serve in every department of the hospital working to make patient's stays more tolerable and the jobs of the hospital staff much easier.

"Together you've provided a total of 20,987 hours of excellent community service over the past year," said the hospital's CEO Luis Hernandez as he addressed the 59 honorees last Friday. "You are a dedicated, enthusiastic group who continue to be an exceptional asset to our hospital and our community."

Also attending the luncheon, held at the hospital's teaching center, was Assemblywoman Michele Titus who told the volunteers "What you're doing comes from the heart and needs to be applauded."
