Tampa Bay/Hudson, Florida – Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point is proud to announce the selection of their 2014 female and male Volunteer of the Year. Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point’s 2014 Volunteers of the Year are Harriet Prager and Harold Flory.

Harriet Prager joined RMCBP as a volunteer in 1999 and has volunteered over 14,500 hours of service. Harriet volunteers in PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit) one day a week and is willing to substitute for others. She is someone who always greets everyone she with a kind word and a smile, extremely sweet, caring and always has a positive attitude. In addition, she sits on the Scholarship Committee, Awards Committee and is Vice President of The Suncoast Health and Education Foundation, always giving 100% of herself. You will not find anyone more loyal and dedicated to her volunteer service than Harriet. Harriet has been doing this for a number of years and volunteers as if it were her first day. She exemplifies Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point’s mission and value statement and her loyalty and dedication to our patients, visitors, staff and fellow volunteers is the reason she received the 2014 Female Volunteer of the Year Award.

Harold Flory has volunteered at RMCBP since 2009 and has over 7,500 hours of service. For all these years rain, shine, cold or hot he has worked five days a week from 7:30 am to 12:00 pm at Entrance B – Lab as a Courtesy Cart Driver. Seldom did he miss his scheduled assignment – always responsible and dedicated to his volunteerism. Harold is an excellent volunteer, loyal, dedicated, compassionate and caring, who puts a smile on the faces of our early bird arrivals for blood work at the lab. As he drives patients and families up the hill he also meets and greets employees and visitors coming in during the morning hours and tends to their shuttle needs. No one is left without a good wish for the day. Harold’s positive attitude and his dedication to the hospital and to the volunteer association makes him most deserving candidate to be the 2014 Male Volunteer of the Year.

The annual Volunteer of the Year awards were given at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point’s annual volunteer banquet and appreciation luncheon that was held on Sunday, April 12 at Spartan Manor.
