MERRILLVILLE | Methodist Hospitals’ Auxiliary recognized 137 volunteers for their service of over 38,000 hours to the healthcare system. Three LPNs were honored and awarded LPN to RN scholarships to complete their Registered Nursing degrees. The LPN to RN Scholarship program was started by the Auxiliary in 2011, and the three Methodist LPNs were the first recipients of this scholarship fund. 

Ian McFadden, President and CEO of Methodist Hospitals, said “volunteers are the heart of Methodist Hospitals. They are there to lend a helping hand and offer a kind word, and we can never overestimate the lasting impression that they leave on our patients and their families. In addition to their daily presence at the hospital, their fundraising efforts support scholarships such as the ones awarded today and help us to fill many other program and equipment needs. Ian McFadden also recognizes the newly installed leadership of the Auxiliary, including President Fredricka Davidson, Second Vice President Nora Nehring, Secretary Verda Daniels, Corresponding Secretary Margaret Detert and Treasurer Daisy Purnell.

The Methodist Hospitals 2012 Annual Awards luncheon was held on Tuesday, October 23rd. at the Avalon Manor in Merrillville.
