Moore Medical Center Auxiliary Coordinator Kathy Howell — who has spent the last seven years serving and working for the local hospital — has decided it is time to step down.

“I’ve thought about Moore Medical Center everyday for seven years, even before the hospital was built,” she said. “I’ve loved every minute of it and will miss the volunteers dearly.”

Seven years ago, Howell saw an article in The American asking for volunteers to help with the new hospital that developers were building in Moore. She had been a teacher for almost 30 years and wanted to continue to serve her community.

“Kathy has been a tremendous resource for the Auxiliary in Moore. Her enthusiasm is infectious,” said Wendy Fiebrich the manager of Norman Regional Health System’s Volunteer Services.

Howell said the group started out with nothing but excitement for the new hospital, “I’ve had more fun than anyone should at a job. It has been a delight working with the volunteers and Norman Regional Health System.”

Norman Regional officials praised Howell’s work.

“When you think of Moore Medical Center, one of the first things that come to mind is the incredible volunteer auxiliary and their dedication to the community and the hospital,” said Paula Price, Norman Regional Health System Director of Health Promotion and Community. “This is due in large part to Kathy Howell’s leadership these past seven years.”

Moore Medical Center is the only hospital in the city of Moore.

With approximately 70 volunteers, they keep busy providing a number of services for the hospital. Volunteers operate and staff the gift shop, meet and greet patients and visitors, deliver flowers, create and a distribute gift to patients in the hospital.

Interested volunteers should call the Moore Medical Center at 912-3485.
