Greenwich Hospital Auxiliary Volunteer Award goes to dedicated couple

Betsy and Steve Corman — longtime Greenwich Hospital volunteers and benefactors — were honored with the Auxiliary Volunteer Award for outstanding service. The couple amassed close to 9,000 hours for their mission to educate and support cancer patients and their loved ones.

Corman accepted the award on behalf of himself and Betsy, who passed away in 2015. Betsy was the oncology volunteer coordinator who also spearheaded the Healing Shawls program, which has distributed more than 2,400 hand knit shawls and 2,200 hats to patients. Steve is a prostate cancer survivor who serves as a peer coordinator for the hospital’s Prostate Cancer Education Forum.

The couple was instrumental in bringing the Schwartz Center Rounds to Greenwich Hospital and in 2012 gave a seed gift to establish the Palliative Care Program. Schwartz Center Rounds, found in more than 400 hospitals worldwide, offers healthcare professionals a monthly safe haven to discuss the social and emotional issues they face in caring for patients and families.

“The couple’s refrain — ‘When we see a need we can fill, we just go ahead and do it’ – perfectly illustrates their dedication to the hospital,” said Sally Lochner, Auxiliary president.

Corman resides in Stamford, Conn.

Steve Corman has been a volunteer at Greenwich Hospital for more than a dozen years.
