Auxiliary Department of Mission Regional Medical Center (MRMC) made their annual donation to
the hospital in the generous amount of $70,000. Auxiliary Board Vice President
Russ Winters presented the donation to Javier Iruegas, CEO, Mission Regional
Medical Center, during the Annual Auxiliary Board Installation meeting
at The Club at Cimarron.
The donation to the hospital is a result of the Auxiliary’s 2014-2015
fundraising efforts as well as proceeds from gift shop sales. Donation
monies will be designated to support various service lines at MRMC.
This year, Auxiliary members provided approximately 26,000 hours of onsite
volunteer service to MRMC. According to the Texas Association of Hospital
Auxiliaries, each volunteer hour is worth $22.55 to its recipient institution.
Based on that hourly figure, Mission Regional Medical Center on-site volunteers
provided $586,300 of volunteer assistance in one year.
"I don't know what we'd do without our great volunteers,"
said Lilliam Santana-Barrera, Director of Volunteer Services. "We
appreciate their time, their effort and all of their hard work,"
The new Auxiliary Board Members for 2015-2016 are Dora Banda, President;
Russ Winters, Senior Vice President; Oma Bush, Vice President of Membership,
Rosa Nea Garza, Treasurer; Gloria Ibarra, Assistant Treasurer; Violet
Wiersig; Corresponding Secretary; Carmen Garza, Recording Secretary; and
Nancy Martinez, Parliamentarian.
