Gene Laurendeau receives Volunteer of the Quarter acknowledgmentOct. 31, 2017 – Gene Laurendeau of Brunswick was recently named Volunteer of the Quarter by the Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick Campus Auxiliary.

Laurendeau joined the Health System’s Brunswick Auxiliary in June 2016 and volunteers several days a week in the Surgical Services’ central prep and recovery area. He also actively volunteers for Auxiliary fundraisers and special projects.

“Volunteering is extremely rewarding,” says Laurendeau. “I’m honored to be recognized, but frankly what we do is a team effort and we have a wonderful team!”

When Laurendeau is not volunteering at the Health System, or with the St. Francis Xavier Parish Council, he enjoys reading, fishing, water activities, cooking and wine tasting. His significant other, MaryLynne Cochran, is also a Health System volunteer.

More than 300 volunteers generously share their time and talents to assist patients, visitors, and team members at the Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick and Camden campuses, as well as the Senior Care Centers in Brunswick and St. Marys.
