The Sacred Heart Hospital Auxiliary was formed in 1955 under the direction of Sister Cyril and Mary Vollmar. In August of 1966, the Sisters of St. Francis offered Sacred Heart Hospital to the city of Le Mars. The name of the Hospital was changed December 1, 1966 to Floyd Valley Hospital, thus the Floyd Valley Hospital Auxiliary.
In 1993, the Auxiliary opened the Gift Shop in the lobby of the hospital carrying new and specialty items. Over the course of the 43 years, the Auxiliary has provided many services to the hospital, its patients and the community.
