Uniontown Hospital recently honored three members of their Junior Volunteers team for their commitment to making a healthy difference at the facility.
Three members of the Junior Volunteers team were specially commended for providing more than 100 hours of service over the last two years.
“These junior volunteers are a shining example of the exceptional impact people can make in the lives of others simply by giving of their time and talents,” Human Resources Executive Director Christa Ebbert said. “They are living their commitment to making a healthy difference in the lives of others and we are proud of their accomplishments and thankful for their service.”
The three Junior Volunteers honored include, Nicole Sova, with 187 hours of service; Jack Killinger, with 163 hours of service; and Rebecca Jurosco, with 134 hours of service. Each of the three honorees is from Fayette County and each received a gift card as a token of appreciation for their service.
Killinger donated his time as a volunteer in the Emergency Department, while Sova and Jurosco dedicated their efforts to patient engagement through the hospital’s Comfort Cart Program – which offers things like reading materials, pens, writing pads, newspapers and games for patients.
The Uniontown Hospital Junior Volunteer Program is designed for teenagers between the ages of 14 to 18 years old.
The program helps to teach responsibility, fosters professional skills and provides first-hand experience to examine careers in health care.
Both Sova and Jurosco have stated their intent to pursue careers in nursing.
