For Immediate Release October 28, 2016

Ruth Arnouts recently recognized Anne Volkis, RN, staff nurse on telemetry unit at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton as an “Everyday Hero” by making a contribution to UM Memorial Hospital Foundation in Volkis’ honor. 

“Anna Volkis was instrumental in keeping my mother calm after an episode of confusion during the night,” wrote Arnouts’ daughter in a letter to the UM Memorial Hospital Foundation. “Anna was kind, calm and professional; thank you for being an everyday hero!”

The Everyday Hero program provides patients, visitors and staff members with the opportunity to recognize and thank any member or team at UM Shore Regional Health, who made a positive difference in a visit or stay, by making a financial contribution of any size to  the Memorial Hospital Foundation or the UM Chester River Health Foundation. Funds received through the Everyday Hero program are used for equipment, capital improvements and staff education in the departments in which the employees or team work.
