Volunteers can return to Lee Health

LEE COUNTY, Fla.– After a long absence during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers are slowly but surely returning to their posts at Lee Health.

“It was March 12th, a year ago now that we had to suspend our program but I’m telling you, all the staff and leaders are so excited to welcome them back,” said Teresa Frank’Fahrner, Director of Volunteer Services at Lee Memorial.

Volunteers will now have to attend “pandemic orientation.” Even with these new precautions, volunteers are just happy to be back.

“I feel like a child would feel at Christmas because it was a long year not being able to help,” said Jerry Sushil, who’s been driving the trolly for Lee Memorial for the last 3 years.

“Considering the situation at the time I understood, but obviously I missed the whole year and being here,” said piano volunteer, Mario Escobar.

The Director of Volunteer services said this is just Phase 1 of volunteers returning.

Phase 2, which will be volunteers working closely with patients, is set to begin in a few months.

“We plan this to be a slow phase return of our volunteers to make sure we keep them safe, our patients and our families,” said Frank’Fahrner.
