Southeastern Med is truly a community hospital. More than 150 volunteers contribute thousands of hours to the hospital every year.
This week, we'll be honoring our dedicated volunteer team for everything they do to serve the needs of our patients and visitors. The hospital departments will set out tokens of appreciation to give to our volunteers as they make their rounds, and on April 8th we'll host our annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner. Volunteers will receive awards based on the number of hours they've contributed over the last year, and hospital management will serve them a lovely sit-down dinner.
Volunteers at Southeastern Med are crucial to the operations of the hospital. If you've ever been to the hospital, you've probably encountered at least a dozen of them. They man the information desk. They discharge patients and take samples to the lab. They deliver mail and flowers to patients. They manage interoffice mail and deliver supplies to the departments as needed. They work in the gift shop. They check in patients arriving for outpatient or surgical procedures. They also shuttle patients from the parking area to the hospital, and much, much more.
During a hospital visit, nothing is more reassuring than the compassion and superior care provided by healthcare staff.
Diligence to exceptional patient care and dedication to continuing professional education makes the nurses at Southeastern Med excellent in providing high-quality, comprehensive, patient-centered healthcare to our local community.
Christine Forshey, Angie Gibson, Rita Mellott, and Beth Wick, nurses at Southeastern Med, recently received national recognition for reaching a significant milestone in the nursing profession. Since 1993, they have consistently maintained the CCRN certification. The certification is a credential granted through the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) Certification Corporation.
A critical care nurse an expert in nursing care of acutely and/or critically ill patients. The recognized nurses from Southeastern Med are included in a group of 1,489 CCRNs being honored this year by the corporation and the AACN for 20 years of continuous certification.
“CCRN is one of the hardest certifications to obtain in the nursing profession. It takes great experience, advanced knowledge and perseverance. This is a testament to the loyalty and hard work that these ladies exemplify,” said Michael Campbell, Director of Critical Care Services at Southeastern Med.
Southeastern Med has launched a new website to serve as a health information resource for the Cambridge community and recruit new medical talent to our region.
The new website offers improved navigation, a complete listing of medical services, health screening information and more. Visitors can also find a local doctor by using the helpful Find a Physician feature, or pay their hospital bills online through the convenient online bill pay portal.
Physicians and medical personnel wishing to practice in this region can use the site to access current career opportunities.
The new website also makes it easy for visitors to sign up for the SEORMC's monthly health newsletter, connect on social media, check in at events, and more.

The Southeastern Med Auxiliary recently donated $24,000 to complete its pledge of $84,000 toward the purchase of a GeneXpert ® currently being used in the hospital’s Laboratory Department. This progressive system reduces turn-around-times for vital lab tests from days to hours, enabling doctors to make quicker, more informed treatment decisions. The Southeastern Med Auxiliary is dedicated to enhancing patient care through community fundraisers. This donation of $24,000 was raised through the Southeastern Med Auxiliary’s 21st Annual Wonderland of Trees event in November. Pictured with the GeneXpert ® (L to R) are Debra Banna, director of Laboratory Services at Southeastern Med; Marti Reed, Wonderland of Trees Chairperson; Bonnie Perkins, Wonderland of Trees Chairperson; and Suellen Johnson, president of the Auxiliary.
