EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Jennifer Loew recently was named the new regional director of Volunteer Services at Mayo Clinic Health System in northwest Wisconsin.
Prior to becoming director, Loew worked for more than nine years as an administrative assistant, coordinator and manager of operations for the volunteer program.
As regional director, Loew is responsible for overseeing Volunteer Services in Barron, Bloomer, Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, Menomonie, Osseo and Rice Lake. She also will serve as a resource for volunteer coordinators and work to enhance the recruitment and retention of volunteers.
“I am very excited to be working with a great team to build our volunteer programs in the northwest Wisconsin region,” says Loew. “Our goal for 2016 is to work as a team across the region to expand and build programs that really enhance the patient’s experience and add value to the volunteer’s work.”
More than 900 people volunteer over 87,000 hours of time each year at Mayo Clinic Health System in northwest Wisconsin. Without volunteers, the hospital would require about 41 additional full-time workers whose combined salaries would total $1.9 million per year.
