Those Auxiliary volunteers in their navy and white uniforms are back after more than a year’s absence! A measured return of volunteer activities began with the easing of COVID protocols and Ventura’s entry into less-restrictive tiers. While not all services have returned, pending safety review, most areas of the hospital are now accessible to volunteer workers, relieving staff of some of the more mundane duties and allowing them to concentrate more fully on patient care.
While hospital staff have expressed their appreciation for the return of the CMH Auxiliary help, the volunteers have been equally enthusiastic about being able to resume their activities. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact the Auxiliary at 805-948-4299.
