Mountain Vista Medical Center Auxiliary
As ambassadors of the hospital, the Mountain Vista Medical Center Auxiliary supports and complements patient services by assisting patients, visitors and staff, within the hospital and community, in a welcoming, caring and compassionate manner.
- All hospital volunteers automatically become a part of the Mountain Vista Medical Center Auxiliary.
- Those who do not wish to volunteer within the hospital on a regular schedule may choose to be a community auxiliary member. These volunteers must serve a minimum of twice a year at special Auxiliary events and attend at least two regular meetings, including the annual meeting in March.
- To become a community Auxiliary member, please contact Rene Batson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-358-6500 for more information and an application.
