As she looks back on another year at the helm of the Dignity Health Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, Fran Thompson, current Auxiliary president, feels pride in the group’s successes. But she also feels gratitude that they were even able to perform the service that is so meaningful to them and so vital to the hospital.

“Like 2020 and 2021, 2022 has been a year of flexibility,” Fran says. “Fortunately, we were able to return to service in March with the opening of the Pine Tree Gift Shop and our main lobby desk and outpatient lobby desk.”
