The Miriam Hospital Women’s Association honors longtime volunteer

Posted

PROVIDENCE – The Miriam Hospital Women’s Association will present its 36th annual Recognition Award to Judy Siegel at the association’s 124th Annual Meeting and Luncheon, on June 2. The event will be held virtually and in person at the Ledgemont Country Club, in Seekonk.

Siegel has been a dedicated volunteer with Lifespan hospitals for over 25 years and with The Miriam Hospital for the past 10 years. She has sat on the boards of both the Rhode Island Hospital Guild and The Miriam Hospital Women’s Association. For the hospital guild, she has served in various positions, including president. At The Miriam Hospital group, she sits on the board and has served as recording secretary, and, most recently, as membership chair, coming up with new and fun ideas to recruit members. In addition, her duties have included organizing the very event that she will be honored at this year!

Siegel was often the first friendly face to greet families and patients at Hasbro Children’s Hospital and was a patient liaison before coming to The Miriam to volunteer in the surgical center, where she checks patients in and is a comforting presence for families in the waiting room.

“Having to come to the hospital for any type of procedure can be unnerving for patients and their families,” Siegel said. “I’ve always felt that having a friendly face to greet you and be a source of comfort and information goes a long way toward making someone feel at ease.”
Siegel said she was thrilled to recently be able to resume her in-person volunteer duties at The Miriam.
