On Saturday, May 18, at Gala 31, Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) will recognize Theresa Corbitt with the Rossomme Award for Dimensions in Volunteer Service.

Ms. Corbitt began her volunteer service at MVH more than a decade ago in the third year of her breast cancer therapy at the Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center. She initially volunteered with cancer patients and then became one of the Hospital's first "Ask Me! Greeters," to provide service throughout the Hospital. In 2018, she became one of the first members of MVH's newly established Patient and Family Advisory Council that was created to enhance the experiences of patients and their families at MVH. She is assisting in the development of a program to provide greater comfort and communication to Emergency Department patients during their stay.

The Rossomme Award for Dimensions in Volunteer Service was established to honor the memory of Florence S. Rossomme. A dedicated volunteer, Mrs. Rossomme served in many leadership roles as a member of the Auxiliary of Mon-Vale Health Resources, Inc. and one of its predecessor organizations - the Auxiliary of Charleroi-Monessen Hospital where her volunteer service began in 1943. This award recognizes people who tirelessly give of their time and talents in volunteer service to the health system

Gala 31, themed "A Roaring Good Time," is the Hospital's annual black-tie fundraiser. Each year exemplary individuals are celebrated for their commitment to excellence with the Dimensions in Performance Awards. These awards honor the multi-dimensional talents of special friends, benefactors and members of the health care family who have distinguished themselves in the areas of philanthropy, medicine, volunteerism and civic well-being.
