Celebrating 70 Years of Volunteering

The Wood County Hospital family would like to thank  the hundreds of volunteers that donate their time and talent to support our efforts in serving our community for the past 70 years.

Shortly after the hospital opened, over 800 volunteers formed the Wood County Hospital (WCH) Guild. Members of the Guild volunteered their services at the hospital, serving as “Gray Ladies,” assisting with gardening, housekeeping, social services, public relations and sewing. A service cart  was introduced and taken to patient rooms offering food, gifts and toys. The cart remained in service until a few years ago.

In the early 1970s, volunteers formed the Wheeled Meals program. WCH dietary staff continue to prepare these meals that are delivered by volunteers to home-bound residents in Bowling Green. 

Lifeline, an emergency response system for people who live alone, was established by volunteers in the 1980s. Volunteers are trained and assist with installations yet today.

In the 1990s, volunteers were being placed in the Surgical Waiting Room, delivering interdepartmental mail, and helping at the Welcome Center. Home and garden tours utilized hundreds of volunteers as the community came together. Today, volunteers plan and staff the Guild fundraiser “Hops & Vines.”

Volunteers continue to play a significant role at WCH. Their gift of time is extremely valuable and appreciated. The fundraising efforts by volunteers have been essential in helping the hospital in many ways.

Wood County Hospital is made better through the efforts and impacts made by its volunteers.

Thank you to the over 250 volunteers that serve our community hospital each year!
