California Hospital Volunteer Impact Questionnaire
Submission deadline extended - October 11, 2019

The California Association of Hospitals and Health Systems has developed a multi-year, phased approach to volunteer data-gathering — and we need your help. 

Until now, hospital volunteer organizations have lacked a single data measurement tool that can support a collective, statewide database. Each hospital maintains its own style of calculating volunteer statistics or has no electronic system for gathering and comparing volunteer data. Hospitals have unique volunteer organizational structures, staffing and programs. This questionnaire represents an important first step toward building a robust California hospital volunteer database that will allow organizations to compare their data to those of similar hospitals. Because these data are intended for our collective benefit, individual responses will not be disclosed. 

Your input on the California Hospital Volunteer Impact Questionnaire© is crucial.  Thanks for taking this first step with us — click here to begin. The submission deadline has been extended. Your response is requested by October 11, 2019.
