The Valley View Hospital Auxiliary is looking for new members with an interest and desire to serve the hospital community. Many rewarding volunteer positions are available to fit your needs and schedule. Members help out in numerous ways including information desks, gift shop, library, acute care, day surgery, hospice, blood bank and the ASSIST program. Some positions involve patient contact and some do not. In addition to volunteer work at the hospital, the auxiliary’s goal is Health Education. Every dollar the auxiliary raises is dedicated to health education through nursing scholarships and the Connie Delaney Healthsource Library. The library is open to patients, staff and the general public and personal assistance is available. The ASSIST program has been recently added to the volunteer programs offering companionship, comfort and help to patients and families at Valley View Hospital.

It takes many pieces to make up the whole. If you’d like to become an auxiliary member, volunteer at the hospital, or desire more information, call Becca Schickling, volunteer coordinator, at 384-6656.
