Toi McMullin, the director of volunteer services at White River Medical Center (WRMC) in Batesville, has been elected president of the Arkansas Society of Directors of Volunteer Services (ASDVS), according to Gary Bebow, WRMC administrator/CEO.
The ASDVS is an affiliate of the Arkansas Hospital Association Auxiliary (AHAA) and is focused on professional development, supporting healthcare volunteerism and forging alliances to build healthier communities.
McMullin has been an employee at WRMC for 12 years. She began her career as a Patient Care Technician (PCT) while attending nursing school. Before her promotion to director of volunteer services, she worked as a registered nurse in WRMC’s CardioPulmonary Rehabilitation program.
“Toi’s dedication to our volunteers and to healthcare is essential in her role,” said Gary Bebow. “I appreciate Toi’s willingness to share her talents to lead this important state-wide organization.”
As the director of volunteer services, McMullin is responsible for working with more than 100 volunteers at WRMC and Stone County Medical Center. Volunteers donate more than 23,000 hours of their time each year to provide services to patients and visitors. Services range from greeting and escorting visitors, manning the information desks, serving as hosts in the waiting rooms, shuttling patients and visitors to and from their cars, offering individualized hospitality to patients, and assisting with clerical functions throughout the hospital. The volunteers also manage and staff hospital gift shops. Proceeds from the gift shops are used to fund scholarships, capital equipment purchases, and facility improvements.
McMullin earned an Associate of Science in Nursing from the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas at Arlington.
