Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center
Making a difference in the South Bay since 1966.
The Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center Auxiliary has actively provided volunteer service to the hospital for 50 years. Founded in 1966 to support the Community Hospital of Chula Vista (now Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center), the Auxiliary moved with the hospital to Medical Center Court in 1975. With more than 300 men, women and student volunteers, the Auxiliary contributes 50,000 hours of service to the hospital and surrounding communities each year.
The continuing purpose of the Auxiliary Volunteer Program is to render service to the hospital and its patients through volunteer opportunities, promotion of the health and welfare of the community and fundraising. To accomplish this, we rely on volunteers with a diverse range of skills and experience. We work hard to match the interests of our volunteers with the needs of the hospital. Our volunteers fulfill important roles, including:
- Assisting staff throughout the hospital campus, including all patient floors, emergency department, Birch Patrick Convalescent Center and Douglas & Nancy Barnhart Cancer Center
- Greeting and escorting patients and visitors
- Helping raise funds to support hospital programs and services
- Patient support through integrative services
- Providing clerical support to hospital departments
- Running errands for hospital departments
- Staffing a campus shuttle for patients, visitors and employees
- Staffing the Sharp Chula Vista Auxiliary's gift shop
- Visiting patients as part of our pet and clown therapy programs
