Tuesday, December 8, 2015

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Summit Health recently held its annual pastoral caregiver appreciation banquet at the Central Presbyterian Church in Chambersburg. More than 90 people, including honorees and their guests, attended the Colonial-themed event.

“This appreciation banquet is our way to honor and thank the on-call volunteer chaplains, who respond to emergency requests from patients and staff at all hours of the night, and on weekends,” said Rev. Dr. Paul Yeun, Director of Pastoral Care for Summit Health. “We appreciate all the lay pastoral care givers for their time and effort of visiting and providing pastoral care to patients and their families.  It’s just a small way to show how much we appreciate their on-going care and contributions.”

Summit Health’s leadership team also provided statements of thanks and gratitude to the care providers.

“In addition to caring for our patients medical needs, some ask we care for their spiritual needs as well, and it’s important to us that we are able to honor those requests,” said John Massimilla, Chief Operating Office, Chambersburg Hospital. “In order to offer this type of care, we need volunteers. We are so grateful for the time and talent that this group shares with us, and shares with our patients, on a continued basis.”
