Members of the Mena Regional Auxiliary recently attended the Arkansas Hospital Association’s 87th Annual Meeting, held at the Little Rock Marriot Statehouse Convention in Little Rock, AR. Darren Caldwell, Chairman of the Arkansas Hospital Association, deemed volunteers as “Heroes of Modern Healthcare” during his speech to the attendees. “It has been said that time is the most precious commodity we have and if this is the case then this charitable giving made by our Auxilians needs to be even more appreciated than the donations and other funds they bring into our organizations each day. As Chairman of the Arkansas Hospital Association, I would be honored to go on record to say that when my career comes to a close I hope that I will be able to give back to this industry by volunteering my time to be a foot soldier for healthcare and positively impact lives as the Auxilians of this fine state do every day.” At Mena Regional Health System, we are very grateful for our dedicated volunteers who give so generously of their time to assist our patients and their families.
