Congratulations to Joy Ragland, a longtime volunteer with Barton Memorial Hospital

She has stepped up to an appointed state position with the California Association of Hospitals and Health Systems (CAHHS).

Her title “chair-designate” was approved by the CAHHS Board of Trustees at the December board meeting and her official duties began in February at the Annual Conference.

Current chair for the Committee on Volunteer Services, Joanne Murray, stated that “Joy’s enthusiasm, dedication and hard work over the past years have been a definite asset to CAHHS, and greatly appreciated.”

Ragland’s role is second in command for promoting volunteerism, opportunities for growth, communicating to assist hospitals and their patients, providing professional leadership and developing volunteer recognition for a financially self-sustaining organization.

Ragland’s involvement plans to bring Barton Hospital into the main stream of communication.
