Darien Resident named

Volunteer of the Month

Hinsdale, IL –Adventist Hinsdale Hospital selected Darien resident Dorothy Tesar as November Volunteer of the Month. A volunteer since March 2002, Tesar greets patients and family members at the hospital’s information desk.

            She was chosen based on her efficiency, friendliness and caring attitude, said Sher Fox, director of volunteers. Tesar has logged more than 1,500 hours as a volunteer. “Repeat patients often refer to her by first name because they have such positive memories of her,” Fox said. “Her attitude is always amazingly positive, and she is an inspiration to those of us lucky enough to work with her.”        

            The upcoming holiday season provides a great reason to donate the gift of time. Volunteers assist with visitor inquiries, phone reception, flower delivery, food service, patient relations and in the gift shop. They also provide clerical support.  For information, about volunteer opportunities at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, call 630-856-4000.
