Hutcheson Medical Center named Jim McDaniel as the hospital’s Volunteer of the Month for August. Mr. McDaniel has volunteered in Hutcheson’s Emergency Department for four years.
“I enjoy it all” said Mr.
McDaniel, a retired building inspector who also worked for Catoosa County and Angel EMS. “I like being there to help out where I can and enjoy everything about it.” McDaniel volunteers in 12 hour shifts, mostly during weekends, when emergency room volumes are typically higher.
According to Jennifer Daniels, Director of Hutcheson’s ED and ICU, Mr. McDaniel is quick to jump in and help where needed. “He’s awesome,” said Ms. Daniels. “He cleans beds, transports patients to X-Ray, and helps patients at the front door who need help with wheelchairs.”
As Volunteer of the Month, Mr. McDaniel received a basket with gift certificates and gift items from The Hutch Gift Shop. He was awarded use of the Volunteer of the Month parking space and his name will be added to the recognition plaque by the hospital’s information desk.
