MAYWOOD, IL – During National Volunteer Week, April 7-13, MacNeal Hospital is honoring JoAnn Smith, who has spent 11,720 hours volunteering at the hospital during the past 18 years.
Ms. Smith, who lives in Berwyn, volunteers in the Women's Health Center, admitting and other departments.
Ms. Smith was inspired to volunteer by her late husband, who was also a MacNeal volunteer. After he died, she began volunteering at the hospital in his honor.
