The Valley View Hospital Auxiliary is comprised of volunteers who support the hospital through numerous ways. Not only do they contribute their time to the hospital, they also provide monetary support through fundraising efforts to pursue their goal of Health Education for the community.
All funds raised by the Auxiliary are contributed to the Connie Delaney Medical Library and sponsorship of the Auxiliary Scholarship Program for those pursuing a career in the health sciences or medical profession.
