Volunteering at United Hospital Center

United Hospital Center has two organizations that actively seek volunteers interested in supporting the mission of UHC. Volunteer opportunities exist with both the Auxiliary to United Hospital Center and People’s Hospice for those interested in providing volunteer services to individuals served by UHC and supporting the special events and projects of the hospital.

Auxiliary to United Hospital Center

Auxiliary to WV Hospital Association Volunteer of the Year 9/2011 - 8/2012: Sandy Mossor

 

Sandy Mossor began volunteering in June of 2001 and has amassed 19,570 hours of volunteer service as of June 30, 2011.  She is very dedicated and has continued to volunteer many times per week and even when a substitute is needed.  Sandy began volunteering at the information desk but quickly got interested in our Gift Shop.  She moved to the Gift Shop and filled several shifts, enabling the Gift Shop to be open more hours.  Sandy is a real people person too and developed relationships with the people and employees that shop.  She has taken over the intensive work of scheduling the volunteers in the gift shop and does an excellent job.  Sandy also places orders for several categories of inventory for the shop.  She was even renamed; everyone lovingly calls her "Gift-Shop-Sandy"!

She has again added the information desk to her schedule where she volunteers regularly and as a substitute when needed.  She is serving her second term on the Auxiliary Board of Directors as Treasurer and contributes new and fresh ideas to our board. 

Sandy is an active member of her church and lives her life accordingly.
