The PVH Auxiliary is a group of men and women who work as a team to volunteer for hospital-related events, greet patients and their families, and supply certain items to patients as needed. They also conduct fundraising and provide scholarships to non-traditional students pursuing a degree in the healthcare industry.

PVH typically hosts twos American Red Cross blood drives each year—one in June and another in December, both at the Lincoln Knights of Columbus Hall. The blood drives usually bring in nearly 80 units of blood being collected for those in need.
This group meets twice a month at PVH with two survivors leading the group. All area cancer survivors and their caregivers are invited to attend for help in dealing with cancer. Discussion topics include finances, transportation, cancer centers, and occasional guest speakers. The group helps to fund education, transportation and other care costs for area cancer patients that are in need. Find them on Facebook.
PVH participates in a regional disaster preparedness committee with several other agencies including provider groups, other hospitals, local police and fire departments, schools, and other organizations. The goal of these meetings is to prepare for pandemic flu, natural disasters, or other incidents that could affect our communities as well as to find ways to work together to share resources and protect the community.
PVH is one of the largest employers in the Lincoln Lakes Region. By employing over 210 people in the community, PVH is a leader in creating and maintaining jobs and livelihoods in the region. Read more in our Community Benefit Report.  
Each week, the PVH staff places articles and ads in the local paper, the Lincoln News, the PVH website, PVH Facebook page and other nearby publications covering topics that are helpful to the general public. These include topics such as hand hygiene, disease prevention, and nutritional advice. The hospital also produces a 5 variety of brochures and educational materials covering a wide range of health-related topics which are handed out to the public.
Students from local schools throughout the region, as well as Boy and Girl Scout troops, were given tours of PVH in the past. During the tours, students learn age-specific healthcare information like proper hand hygiene, x-ray processing, and laboratory testing.
