Volunteer Luncheon

Houston Healthcare, after two years of socially distanced celebrations, was finally able to celebrate with our volunteers in-person again at Houston Healthcare’s annual Volunteer Luncheon at the Cary W. Martin Conference Center this week. As part of National Volunteer Week, and National Volunteer Day on Wednesday specifically, the organization held a luncheon for our wonderful volunteers to show our appreciation for all that they do for everyone at Houston Healthcare. An integral part of the Houston Healthcare family, our volunteers sacrifice their personal time to bring joy and comfort to our patient population, their peers and our staff. With our volunteers assisting us, we can provide that one extra level of empathy and comradery for our patients in their time of need and give that extra dose of comfort when they and their families need it most.

The Volunteer Luncheon began with a welcome from Melissa Phagan, Chief of Staff, and rolled into our recognition of volunteers, presented by Charles Briscoe, Chief Executive Officer, in conjunction with Gary Mendel, Houston Medical Center Auxiliary President. Invocation was given by Rev. Jerry Bisping, Houston Medical Center Chaplain, before lunch was brought out for everyone to enjoy. Toni Perkins, Volunteer Services Supervisor, introduced this year’s entertainer – Magician Michael Boone - and the antics ensued with magic tricks and fun games. Door prizes were presented for some lucky winners.

Thank you to all our volunteers for their selfless dedication to our patients, staff, and community, and for sharing their time and knowledge to make Houston Healthcare a more caring, compassionate place to bring a loved one for the health care they need.
