Jamestown, New York (Tuesday, September 3, 2013)—Elizabeth A. Derosa has been named the new Volunteer Coordinator at WCA Hospital.  WCA is honored to have more than 200 active volunteers and auxilians who support the mission of the hospital. The WCA Auxiliary manages the Gift Shop at the hospital and is active in general fund-raising for WCA.

“We cannot fulfill our mission without the support of our volunteers who give of themselves to make a difference in the lives of others,” said Elizabeth. “I really feel privileged to work hand-in-hand with such kind-hearted individuals who are inspired by the spirit and mission of WCA and the excellent care that is provided here. It just doesn’t get any better than that.”

Elizabeth joins WCA Hospital with more than 15 years of experience in teaching and developing programs.  She received her Master of Arts and Bachelor of Arts degrees from the State University of New York College at Fredonia. 

After completing her studies, she served as Assistant Professor at Hudson Valley Community College and adjunct English Instructor at Thomas Nelson Community College, located in Hampton, Virginia.  She currently works as an adjunct English Instructor at Jamestown Community College.  An active volunteer herself, Elizabeth volunteers at the St. Susan’s Center preparing meals and serving the many guests from the community. 

“We are always seeking special people who are interested in giving their time and talents to our patients, families and visitors,” said Elizabeth.  “Whether you are a person who has one hour or twenty hours to share, we can match you to a position that would satisfy both your special interests and the interests of those at WCA.” 

There are numerous volunteer opportunities available at WCA Hospital including Gift Shop support, office work support, filing, front desk support and more.  Be part of a very special team!  For more information about the WCA Hospital Volunteer Program or to schedule an interview to volunteer, please contact Elizabeth at (716) 664-8224.  Interested individuals can also complete the hospital’s volunteer application on-line at
