For 59 years, the Sierra View Volunteer League served Sierra View Medical Center (SVMC) patients, visitors, staff, and community members. Through their volunteer service and fundraising efforts, the Volunteer League has provided tremendous support to local healthcare over the years.
As its own 501(c)(3) with an elected governing board, the Sierra View Volunteer League voted to dissolve the league at SVMC on March 27, 2023. Dissolving the Volunteer League allows league members to focus on their passion of volunteering without having to run or attend board meetings, pay dues, or manage league financials.
The Sierra View Volunteer League has a long history of serving the community. Sierra View Medical Center and the Sierra View Local Healthcare District are forever grateful for all the wonderful things accomplished thanks to the Volunteer League. Whether it be scholarships, a daily helpful task, or a flash of a smile, we can all think of a positive sentiment that the Volunteer League has provided for decades.
Volunteer Opportunities at Sierra View
Sierra View Medical Center and the Sierra View Local Healthcare District respect the Volunteer League’s decision to disband and has encouraged league members to apply to other volunteer opportunities available at the hospital. The hospital values the league volunteers and is very happy that many have decided to continue volunteering with us through our Adult Volunteer Program.
Through our Adult Volunteer Program, community members can volunteer at the hospital in an area of their choosing; transporter, clinical unit, and clerical unit. Other volunteer opportunities at Sierra View include spiritual care, No One Dies Alone (NODA), and Pet Partners. Our volunteer programs are managed through SVMC’s Human Resources Department, allowing hospital volunteers to focus solely on their passion of volunteering.
Although the Volunteer League has voted to dissolve, SVMC’s volunteer opportunities hold the same core values of community service. Volunteers will still bring the same warmth and helpful hand to the hospital, while being able to focus on their passion of giving.
The hospital gift shop, previously managed by the Volunteer League, has closed as of April 28, 2023, for an undermined amount of time. The gift shop will reopen under new management once the state approves the Sierra View Volunteer League dissolution.
