Kaweah Delta Hospital Guild
The Kaweah Delta Hospital Guild was founded in 1956, and has been going
strong ever since. To date, the Guild has volunteered over two million
service hours, and donated about the same amount of money. The money donated
is used to purchase patient care equipment for the hospital. In 2014-15,
the Guild raised $126,427.20 for patient care equipment and its members
spent 19,737 hours volunteering for the district.

The Guild is an important part of the hospital's team. Guild volunteers,
both men and women, serve at the hospital's information desk, surgery
waiting room, intensive care units, discharge service, hemodialysis units,
and the book cart.
The Guild Courtyard, the gift shop in the hospital, is also a service.
This gift shop generates the largest portion of the funds used to buy
patient care equipment. It serves as a convenience for hospital employees
and visitors to the hospital. The Courtyard is stocked with a large variety
of gift items, candy, sundries, magazines, and flowers.
Another Guild service, is in the patient comfort area. Lap robes, caps
and pillows are made for the patients in the oncology and rehabilitation
units. "Pillow Pals", as they are called, make quilts, and embroidered
pillows for children in the emergency room and for those admitted in to
Fundraisers are held to raise funds for patient care equipment. Some of
them are: the $5 jewelry sales, scrub and shoe sales, leather sales, book
sales, an annual Bunko party and salad luncheon and more.
We are always looking for more dedicated volunteers. You must be thirty
years of age or older, willing to take a TB test, flu shot and back ground
check, all of which are Kaweah Delta Hospital's requirements.
