Herbert Young was honored with the Frances S. Malamed Memorial Volunteer Award at the 59th Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon for Einstein Healthcare Network. The award was created by Frances Malamed’s daughters, Karen M. Albert and Cheryl Bromwich, and other family members, in memory of Frances Malamed, a beloved volunteer who brought warmth, compassion and reliability to patients, visitors and staff for 43 years.
Frances Malamed, who retired as a volunteer in 2012, was a patient representative who exhibited great compassion and dedication when visiting patients and family members at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia. In this spirit of caring, Herbert Young was selected to receive the first award given in Mrs. Malamed’s honor. Mr. Young is a Patient Advocate Volunteer at MossRehab and Einstein at Elkins Park, helping patients and families in much the same way as Mrs. Malamed.
Herbert Young was nominated for the award by Kim T. Jones, Senior Patient Advocate. Her first encounter with Mr. Young was when he was a patient at MossRehab. When he showed up for the opportunity to be the Patient Advocate Volunteer, he had recovered so much that Ms. Jones was astonished that he was the same man. “Herb comes to the hospital on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with the biggest smile on his face and overwhelmingly pleasant disposition,” says Ms. Jones. “He is deserving of the award for sharing hope and encouragement with everyone he meets and for letting patients know that “their today doesn’t mean it will be their tomorrow… that things can get better.”
