Mission of Saint Agnes Medical Center
Vision Statement:Saint Agnes will continue to be the hospital most frequently requested by patients and physicians in Central California because of its top quality, caring, comprehensive services delivered by teams of physicians and hospital staff.
Humor and Music Program:Laughter can often make a bad situation more bearable. At Saint Agnes Medical Center, we believe that humor has healing properties that are beneficial to the human body. Likewise music can be very soothing, helping relieve the tensions and anxiety of both patients and their families. That is why we have developed a Humor and Music Program to complement our clinical services. Humor and music therapy is available free of charge 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The Humor and Music Department is always looking for volunteers to help round out our program. For more information about this innovative service, call (559) 450-3643.
The Frank Diener Family Chapelof Christ the Healer is open 24 hours a day for prayer and meditation. The chapel is located on the second floor, west of the main hospital lobby. Regular services are offered daily and on Sundays.
Volunteers are a very important part of the Saint Agnes team and are deeply appreciated by the staff and physicians they support! With the opening of our new building expansion, the need for volunteers has been greatly increased. By donating a few hours every other week, you can make a positive difference for the Medical Center and it's patients. For more information, call our Volunteer Office at (559) 450-3521
