Grand View Hospital Presents “Love Award”
|(November 16, 2011) Sellersville, PA – Grand View Hospital recently presented Marian Balaicuis of Hatfield with the LOVE (Life of Volunteer Excellence) award. Marian has been part of Grand View Hospital’s volunteer program since 1979, contributing over 3,950 hours of service.
During a time in her life when she faced a number of personal challenges, she decided to help others rather than dwell on herself. Her decision to support GVH brought her a welcome diversion that blossomed into a meaningful experience.
Marian is valued for her willingness to learn, adapting to change, and volunteering to cover extra shifts when other volunteers are absent. On a weekly basis, she serves as a unit assistant in the Emergency Room and as a facilitator at the Patient Registration desk. She also supports the Hospice program as a friendly visitor, calling on patients in their homes.
In her spare time, Marian enjoys expressing herself through dancing the jitterbug, waltz, disco, and polka. She has one daughter, four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
