MRMC Volunteer Awards

During April’s National Volunteer Week, Milford Regional Medical Center bestowed the Presidential Service Award to five of its volunteers — including Hopkinton’s Bob Cole — to recognize the significant number of hours they have volunteered at the hospital. The Presidential Service Award acknowledges the impact volunteers have on organizations while also inspiring others to act. Each recipient received a certificate signed by President Joe Biden.

Cole has volunteered 5,116 hours over the last 24 years.

“Our dedicated and loyal volunteers provide an invaluable service that not only benefits our staff and patients but from their perspective, is a rewarding way to spend time, learn new skills and meet new people,” said President and Chief Executive Officer of Milford Regional Medical Center and Healthcare System Edward J. Kelly. “It is a gift to have these volunteers as long-time stewards of our commitment to our community.”

Meanwhile, Milford Regional Medical Center received an ‘A’ Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade for spring 2023. This marks the 10th consecutive time the hospital has received the top grade from the Leapfrog Group, a national watchdog organization that is focused on patient safety and quality. The distinction recognizes Milford Regional’s achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm and error while in the hospital.

“The staff at Milford Regional remains steadfast in making certain patient safety is the highest priority,” said Kelly. “The commitment and dedication of our entire staff is the reason we proudly continue to set the highest standards when it comes to our patients’ well-being.”
