The Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital is a member of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Program. The Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation is a non profit organization that raises philanthropic support for the hospital. The Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation oversees the Children Miracle Network Hospitals Program Coordinator. This role is responsible for overseeing the program at the hospital. However, historically this position in particular has never had a formal onboarding to understand the deeper responsibilities of the position. The capstone project was a handbook for the new program coordinator, entailing all of the job expectations and duties. This was a clear outline that the organization can build off of in the future. Through this process, it was unrealistic to have a complete step by step guide of the job because of the kept knowledge over the years. The project was able to be carried out by outlining the general programs and day to day duties of the job. It is recommended that the organization uses this as a foundational tool, and adds more information throughout the years.
