St. Joseph’s Volunteer Auxiliary receives multiple honors at state convention

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – The Volunteer Auxiliary at St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center recently received multiple honors at the annual Arkansas Hospital Auxiliary Association (AHAA) convention in Little Rock.

First and foremost, Peg Kuhnly, a 14-year member and past president of St. Joseph’s Volunteer Auxiliary, was installed as president of the AHAA, which is comprised of 63 auxiliaries and over 8,000 volunteers. St. Joseph’s Volunteer Auxiliary was also a recipient of the Five-Star Award of Excellence – the AHAA’s most coveted honor – and the Outstanding Achievement Fund Raising Award for hospitals with over 100 beds.

There are 23 criteria for the Award of Excellence – from AHAA state and district dues being paid to helping promote Volunteer Week – and points are awarded to each of Arkansas’ 63 Volunteer Auxiliaries as they meet the benchmarks. A judging committee determines how many stars are awarded to each of the Volunteer Auxiliaries and the Five Star Award of Excellence is given to those with 250 or more points.

The Outstanding Achievement Award for Fund Raising is based on the innovation exhibited by auxiliaries in raising funds and the amount of money collected.

St. Joseph’s 403 Volunteer Auxiliary members donated 82, 877 hours in the fiscal year of 2006.

    The nursing home industry and the chamber of commerce finally defeated the trial lawyers in the 2017 legislature. The Republican-dominated body approved a constitutional amendment for voters in 2018 that they'll depict as close to motherhood in goodness.
  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
  • Raw feelings in the Arkansas Justice Building over workload, pay

    Strained relations between the Arkansas Supreme Court and the Arkansas Court of Appeals broke into public view this week. I expect more to come.
