Winn Army Community Hospital recognizes volunteers

Posted: Updated:

Fort Stewart's Winn Army Community Hospital took time on Thursday to recognize many of the volunteers who help make it better.

The annual Medical Department Activity, or MEDACT, Awards recognized soldiers, dependents and civilians who give their time at the hospital.

Directors said the volunteers help in nearly every aspect of hospital service.

"Whether it's a smile, or directions, or just a welcome," said Volunteer Director Brigitte Shanken. "It's about welcoming people and letting them know they are home. That's what makes a difference."

They totaled up the volunteer and estimate that labor saved the hospital almost $400,000 last year.
