The Compassus hospice programs serving Southwest Missouri today announced the addition of Bethany Harrell as volunteer coordinator. Harrell will oversee the volunteer programs in the Springfield and Osceola locations.
Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice care team, giving of their time and talents in many ways from offering companionship and grief counseling to running errands for patients and their families.
“In nearly all of my professional positions I have worked closely with the beloved volunteers that positively impact those organizations,” said Harrell. “I look forward to working with Compassus volunteers to ensure patients and families in Southwest Missouri receive the highest quality care at the end of life.”
Prior to joining Compassus, the Springfield resident served as the development manager at the ALS Association and special events manager at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
