Del Sol Medical Center is pleased to share news of its 2015 Frist Humanitarian Award Volunteer National Finalist, Baby Ruth Boswell. The Frist Humanitarian Awards recognize employees, physicians and volunteers at HCA-affiliated facilities across the country who demonstrate extraordinary concern for the welfare and happiness of patients and their communities.
Boswell has volunteered at Del Sol Medical Center for more than 20 years and is appreciated for her friendliness and caring spirit. She is very active in her church where she serves as a youth director and mentor to young women. She also visits nursing homes, participates in a community check-in program to call a senior every day, and volunteers at the Shaver Home for Boys and the McCall Neighborhood Center. In addition, Boswell initiated the first Silhouette Club in El Paso, an organization that raises funds for scholarships and advocates for the betterment of young black women. She serves as the charter president and a board adviser.
Boswell was recognized in the volunteer category for the national Frist Humanitarian Award and was chosen from a pool of more than 165 finalist nominations. As a runner-up for this prestigious award, she received a $1,000 contribution to the charity of her choice, a cash award and recognition during a national ceremony held on May 16.
