Patricia Cromwell, a local substitute teacher, quilter and dedicated volunteer at Cabell Huntington Hospital, has received the 2012 Volunteer of the Year Award from the Cabell Huntington Hospital Auxiliary.

Cromwell began donating her time to Cabell Huntington Hospital in 2005 and quickly became involved in projects and fundraising efforts. She currently serves as treasurer of the Cabell Huntington Hospital Auxiliary and is often seen at tables throughout the hospital where fundraising raffle tickets and items are sold.

Her teaching career spanned several decades, and she continues to substitute teach in Huntington schools. Since she began volunteering, Cromwell has amassed more than 4,000 volunteer hours.

"Pat's day-to-day performance is dependable, consistent and exceeds our customer standards," said Louise Simmons, a fellow volunteer and Auxiliary trustee who nominated Cromwell. "She also demonstrates concern for the welfare and happiness of all patients, visitors and staff. She definitely has a positive effect on others."

The Cabell Huntington Hospital Auxiliary is a group of volunteers involved in various fundraising activities for the hospital, the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Hoops Family Children's Hospital. Over the years, they have raised money for the Hoops Family Children's Hospital, critical care ambulances, completion of the dialysis center and a major gift toward the North Patient Tower Construction.
