The Faxton St. Luke’s Volunteer Association recently announced the 2014 officers for its Board of Directors.

Jane Gwise has been named president of the Volunteer Association and has served as vice president and member-at-large. Gwise began volunteering more than 20 years ago at Faxton Hospital serving on the Faxton Council. She currently volunteers in the Outpatient Infusion Unit in the Regional Cancer Center at the Faxton Campus.

John Levitas has been named vice president and has been volunteering at Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) since 2007, during which time he has volunteered more than 4,000 hours of service. In addition to serving on the board, John delivers mail and newspapers, and staffs the gift shop, surgery waiting room and information desk.

Craig Heuss has been named treasurer and has been a volunteer for the past seven years. He originally delivered mail before assuming the position of treasurer for the Volunteer Association. In this capacity, he has implemented a software system that saves time and improves efficiency.

The Faxton St. Luke’s Volunteer Association actively seeks to improve the care patients, residents and their families receive, contributing nearly 60,000 hours of service to FSLH in 2013. The organization operates gift shops at both the St. Luke’s and Faxton Campuses, and organizes vendor sales throughout the year. Profits from these endeavors allowed the Volunteer Association to make a $150,000 donation to FSLH to purchase new TVs for inpatient rooms in 2013.

If you would like to get involved and volunteer at FSLH, please call Sue Warwick, director of Volunteer Services, at (315) 624-6052.
