Meet Margery Gruenberg
Marge started at Hurley in December of 2014 and has since accumulated well over 5,000 service hours. Whether it's knitting shawls for the Hurley Breast Navigator Program, putting together hanger bags for the front of walkers, doing whatever special projects are in the works in the Lobby Shop or helping out at countless Hurley events, Marge is on-the-spot and willing to do her part. When we think of all the patients' and employees' lives that she makes better each day, we are certainly grateful she responded to that need.
