Danny's Volunteer StoryJun 6, 2019
Danny Mullis, volunteer, East Cooper Medical Center
“One of my children has made two trips to the ER room at East Cooper, and each time, the doctor who attended to her provided as much comfort to her as they did actual medical care. I was so impressed.”
You know that a hospital can be trusted when someone has been a patient there for 25 years.
Danny Mullis’ first experience at East Cooper was in 1988. Since then he’s had a daughter born there, had numerous outpatient diagnostic tests performed, and sat by as his spouse was treated there as a patient.
“I’ve seen it from the bed and from outside the bed. Everything that I’ve experienced has been top-notch,” says Danny.
At 62, Danny has lived most of his life in South Carolina, mainly in Mount Pleasant. For many years, East Cooper was the only treatment facility in the area and he knew the people were compassionate and the care was the highest in quality.
“One of my children has made two trips to the ER room at East Cooper, and each time, the doctor who attended to her provided as much comfort to her as they did actual medical care. I was so impressed on both of those occasions,” Danny says.
After spending time at the hospital and seeing the way the patients were treated by the staff, Danny knew that East Cooper was the best in its field —even after more medical facilities were established throughout the area. He wanted to do his part to ensure that the care remained top-notch for the community he loves so much.
So in addition to serving as an attorney for the U.S. Courts, Danny spends countless hours volunteering as the Chairman of the Governing Board for East Cooper. Although he’s spent an ample amount of time he’s invested in the position, he still speaks about his duties with passion usually reserved for a newcomer. And his passion for making the hospital an excellent place for the community hasn’t gone unnoticed. The hospital has named a building after him to recognize his service.
“I’ve never been more surprised in my life, and I can certainly say that I’ve never been more humbled by anything that has ever occurred,” Danny says.
