Celebrating the Heart and Soul of the Hospital

The volunteers who contribute time, energy, and compassion to Hereford Regional Medical Center are the heart and soul of our hospital.

These volunteers have donated hundreds…and, in some cases, many thousands, of hours, to the hospital and our patients.



Whether they are welcoming people to the hospital who are visiting family or friends, making sure the gift shop has seasonal items and get-well gifts for purchase, or offering a compassionate touch or message of support, our auxiliary group is critical to the work we do to take care of our community.

In July, we recognized four volunteers with service pins commemorating their years of service to the hospital:

  • Sharon Bodner, 5 years
  • Gail Richardson, 5 years
  • Terrye Rhyne, 10 years
  • Ann Cummings, 25 years

We also recognized volunteers who have donated a substantial amount of time in service to the hospital:

  • Gail George, 100 hours
  • Patti Dirks, 100 hours
  • Janie Castillo, 200 hours
  • Debbie Gonzalez, 200 hours
  • Carolyn Maupin, 200 hours
  • Teddie Poindexter, 250 hours
  • CaroLee Smith, 300 hours
  • Sharon Bodner, 500 hours
  • Gwen Hacker, 700 hours
  • Jean Jackson, 1000 hours
  • Gail Richardson, 1900 hours
  • Cindy Rogers, 3500 hours
  • Terrye Rhyne, 4000 hours
  • Kathryn Musser, 5500 hours
  • Pat Simnacher, 7500 hours
  • Rita Bell, 10,000 hours
  • Ann Cummings, 23,500 hours

Everyone at Hereford Regional Medical Center thanks this dedicated group of volunteers and extends their appreciation for the work they do to support our mission to deliver the highest quality of care and experience for every patient, every time.
