The Brownwood Regional Medical Center Volunteers are privileged to announce the selection of their February 2016 Volunteer of the Month. During the March 2016 meeting of the BRMC Volunteer’s Executive Board, Martin Schneider was selected as the February 2016 Volunteer of the Month.

Schneider joined the BRMC Volunteer Organization in January 2013. He is a familiar face in the Brownwood Regional Medical Center’s emergency room waiting area where he assists emergency room patients, their family members, and visitors during their visit to the emergency room area. Schneider strives to make a visit to the BRMC emergency room as pleasant as possible for the patient and their family members. He has over 770 hours of volunteer service at BRMC.

The Volunteer of the Month Award is awarded by the BRMC Volunteers each month during the year. Recipients of the award receive recognition and lunch at the executive board meeting held in the month following the month for which they are selected. Each BRMC Volunteer of the Month recipient is recognized with a framed Volunteer of the Month certificate, a gift card for a dinner at a local restaurant, and a carrying bag emblazoned with a large heart containing the statement “A Work of Heart.” The carrying bag contains items that celebrate The Texas Association of Healthcare Volunteers motto for 2015 – 16 “Remember those who cannot Remember; Knowledge empowers caregivers”. This motto emphasizes the need to improve everyone’s knowledge of the disease “Alzheimer’s.”
