The Unity Health Foundation presented Jamie Laughlin, Director of Volunteer Services, with the Spirit of Unity Award on Wednesday, Aug. 19.
A gift to the foundation was donated in Laughlin’s name by Unity Health Auxiliary member, June Tripp.
“[Jamie] exemplifies the spirit by her devotion and support for the volunteers,” Tripp said. “She was, and is, an invaluable help, especially since [my husband’s] cancer diagnosis, surgeries and treatments. Any questions I may have had, she tried to answer honestly. She made a difficult time a whole lot easier to deal with.”
The Spirit of Unity Award is a way for patients, or family members of patients, to show their gratitude by giving a gift in an associate’s honor to the Unity Health Foundation. These gifts go toward health-related programs and services that will help ensure that Unity Health is here to care for patients for generations to come.
