BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. – The Hospice Compassus program serving Bullhead City and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Suzanne Stevens and all hospice volunteers during National Volunteer Week April 12-18 for providing companionship, support and dignity to hospice patients and their loved ones.
“We are proud to recognize Suzanne for her efforts to honor life and offer hope to individuals facing a life-limiting illness by supporting them with compassion, integrity and excellence,” said Cindy Wolff, Executive Director for Hospice Compassus – Bullhead City. “Suzanne’s positive attitude and contributions make her a dedicated member of our team, and we are fortunate to have her as a volunteer.”
“Volunteers help make our mission a reality here at Hospice Compassus,” said Dr. Paul Sutera, Medical Director of Hospice Compassus – Bullhead City. “This National Volunteer Week, we are pleased to honor Suzanne, a professional notary volunteer. She has never turned down a call for volunteering and has been willing to drive for many miles to assist a family with notary services. I want to thank her and all of the volunteers on our team for their true dedication to our patients and families.”

estimated 400,000 trained hospice volunteers providing more than 19 million hours of
service to hospice programs each year.
