Sun City Center, Florida - South Bay Hospital celebrated their Volunteers by hosting the Annual Volunteer Awards Banquet held at the King’s Point Clubhouse Theater. The evening was filled with great food, entertainment, dancing and awards.

South Bay Hospital’s 2009 Female Outstanding Volunteer Award was presented to Bunny Cocco, Outpatient Surgery Registration Volunteer. Bunny is described as having a huge smile and positive attitude. She consistently goes the extra mile for those who stop at her desk. Bunny is a ray of sunshine. Since coming to South Bay Hospital in 2002 she has captured the hearts of many with her smile, positive attitude and willingness to go above and beyond.

South Bay Hospital’s 2009 Male Outstanding Volunteer Award was presented to Al Burke, Volunteer Transporter. Al is described as always cheerful and full of spirit. His sense of humor and his warm demeanor are appreciated by staff members and patients alike.  Since becoming a volunteer in 2005 he has touched the hearts of departments and patients in the hospital.

South Bay Hospital also honored its Frist Volunteer Humanitarian Award Winner, Juanita Moon. The Frist Humanitarian Award was created in 1971 to honor outstanding individuals for their humanitarian and volunteer activities. Juanita is always willing to offer her assistance and has an excellent rapport with the many groups served by our hospital including patients, physicians, employees, families and vendors. When not volunteering at South Bay Hospital she can be found in the community assisting her neighbors. If she hears of anyone doing without cloths or food she is the first to provide it for them. Juanita is the “Grandmother” of the neighborhood. She truly exemplifies the humanitarian spirit.
