Hutcheson Auxiliary Members Retire With Combined 75 Years Of Service

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

The Auxiliary at Hutcheson Medical Center celebrated the retirement of Dimple Potter, Jo Cochran, and Jean Wilson, three long standing volunteers who together have a combined 75 years of service at the hospital.  

Ms. Potter began as an Auxiliary volunteer in November 1991.  She served at the hospital’s information desk in the main lobby.  “I enjoyed seeing old friends when they came to the hospital and helping people get to where they needed to go,” said Ms. Potter.

Ms. Cochran also served at the hospital’s information desk and has been an Auxiliary volunteer since March 1993.  Ms. Cochran stated she really enjoyed meeting people as part of her position working in the main lobby.

Ms. Wilson, who began volunteering with the Auxiliary in October 1979, served in The Hutch Gift Shop.  Like Ms. Potter and Ms. Cochran, Ms. Wilson said one of her favorite parts of her position was getting to see and visit with friends and patients who shopped at The Hutch.

“The Auxiliary appreciates the years of service and dedication of all three ladies,” said Chareen Humble, manager of Volunteer Services at Hutcheson.  “Together, their 75 years of volunteer service at Hutcheson have made this hospital an even friendlier place for our patients.”
