RHINELANDER - Hospitals help people when they need it most.

Now, volunteers are helping the hospital.

Volunteers at Ministry Saint Mary's Hospital recently donated 30 thousand dollars.

The money has gone to the hospitals foundation.

Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Frank says they put a lot of hard work into raising the money.

"We helped improve one of the waiting rooms in the ICU area. We have provided different equipment," said Frank.

"Some monitors for the birthing center. We have also helped improved some of the laboratory equipment to help improve efficiency times of lab results."

That money will also go to community outreach programs and a health fair that the hospital funds.

"Everything that the foundation does kind of revolves around the community. We focus obviously on the health and wellness side of life," Foundation Director, Jessie Bolder said.

"And so the things that the foundation does and the hospital does together to help the community really dovetail."

The volunteers provided almost 18 thousand hours of service last year.
