Now Accepting Nominations for the 2019 Elaine M. Hill Award for Distinguished Volunteer Service

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2019 Elaine M. Hill Award for Distinguished Volunteer Service. The deadline is March 30.

The Elaine M. Hill Award for Distinguished Volunteer Service honors the volunteer who best exemplifies Elaine’s spirit and service to UNC Hospitals.  As a volunteer, Elaine M. Hill served refreshments during the opening of the N.C. Memorial Hospital in 1952. From that day until 1990, she was active in UNC Hospitals’ volunteer program -- first as a volunteer, then as Director of Volunteer Services from 1967 - 1990.

Nominations for this annual award are due Saturday, March 30. Nomination forms can be filled out electronically and emailed to or printed and returned to Volunteer Services. Information on submitting the nomination form can be found on the form.

In 1990, in recognition of her leadership, our annual distinguished volunteer service award was named in her honor. Elaine exemplified the heart and soul of the volunteer spirit of caring. Her commitment to excellence in patient care and service makes her one of the true heroes of this institution. 

It is our turn to honor the volunteer who best exemplifies Elaine’s spirit and service to UNC Hospitals. Please share the link for the nomination form with your coworkers and ask them to consider nominating the volunteer(s) who truly make a difference in your area. Nominations are due March 30.
