Learn about our Auxiliary

Established in 1966 to support Community Hospital of Chula Vista, the Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center Auxiliary is rich with history and local pride. As Community Hospital moved locations and ultimately became Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, one thing remained steadfast — the Auxiliary.

Comprised of South Bay community members ranging in age from 14 to over 100 years, our Auxiliary supports Sharp Chula Vista in three ways: through in-hospital volunteer service, community outreach and fundraising. Our fundraising efforts contribute to new build and growth, support special funding projects to enhance patient care, as well as provide educational scholarships to volunteers, employees and children of employees.

Today, all community members who become volunteers automatically become members of our Auxiliary. At our peak, we boast nearly 400 volunteers, providing upwards of 50,000 hours of service each year. Join us today and become part of something wonderful in our South Bay community.
