Hutcheson Medical Center named Sarah Torbett as the hospital’s Volunteer of the Month for July.  Ms. Torbett has volunteered at Hutcheson for five years at Battlefield Imaging.

 

“I enjoy visiting with the patients,” said Ms. Torbett, a 17 year survivor of breast cancer.  “I especially like working with the younger women undergoing mammograms and breast biopsies and try to make them feel as comfortable as possible before the procedure”.

 

“Sarah has a fantastic attitude.  She is very spunky and full of life,” said Chareen Humble, manager of volunteer services at Hutcheson.  Ms. Humble stated that she appreciates Torbett’s positive attitude around patients and colleagues.

 

As Volunteer of the Month, Ms. Torbett received a basket with gift certificates and gift items from The Hutch Gift Shop.  She was awarded use of the Volunteer of the Month parking space and her name will be added to the recognition plaque by the hospital’s information desk.
