GREENVILLE, IL. – Congratulations to the HSHS Holy family Hospital on meeting the requirements for and being awarded the Illinois Hospital Association (IHA) Constituency on Volunteers (CoV) Health Care Advocacy Award.  Of the 200 hospitals in the state of Illinois, only twenty-two active IHA members met the criteria and qualified for this award. The IHA Constituency on Volunteers' (CoV) mission is "support, enhance and expand hospital volunteerism through education." The CoV emphasizes educating the community and volunteer constituents on issues affecting health care. The CoV continues to strengthen the link between the health systems, hospitals and the community.

The HFG Auxiliary is recognized state-wide for its efforts.  To date, the auxiliary’s giving is in excess of $6 million since it was formed in 1957.  These donated funds have been put to good use purchasing capital items to help modernize the hospital and improve patient experience. These generous gifts are only made possible by the hard work and commitment of auxiliary volunteers.
 
There are many ways to get involved with the HFG auxiliary throughout the year, such as the very popular Thrift Shop. For more information, please contact Marian Embry, HFG director of volunteer services and senior living, at 618-690-3525.
