An Un-fore-gettable 18th Annual Sierra View Golf Classic

Golfers hit the course in support of local healthcare at the 18th Annual Sierra View Golf Classic on April 28, 2023. Although it was a warm one, community members and local businesses rallied together to raise funds for our district hospital, Sierra View Medical Center (SVMC).

“Our goal for this event is to allow local community members from businesses and organizations to enjoy an afternoon of competitive golf, who also want to help raise money for hospital equipment and strengthen our local healthcare,” said Karen Johns, Sierra View Foundation 2023 Chair.

Thanks to the generous support of our local community, the 18th Annual Sierra View Golf Classic was a success! Over 45 businesses and local supporters sponsored the tournament, including the 2023 Presenting Sponsor, Bank of the Sierra. At the Tulare Golf Course,116 golfers joined the Sierra View Foundation to enjoy 18 holes of golf and a digital raffle with tee-rific prizes, including the Pot of Gold main prize totaling more than $500 in gift cards.

Supporting the SVMC Cardiac Catheterization Lab

In its 17-year history, the Sierra View Golf Classic has raised more than $450,000 for local healthcare. This year, the proceeds from the Sierra View Golf Classic will help bring state-of-the-art technology to the SVMC Cardiac Catheterization Lab with the purchase of a new Cardiac Echo Machine and Automated Impella Controller.

The Cardiac Echo Machine releases high-frequency sound waves. The transducer picks up the echoes of sound waves and transmits them as electrical impulses. The machine converts these impulses into moving pictures of the heart. Still pictures can also be taken.

The Automated Impella Controller supports all Impella Heart Pumps, a device used to maintain blood flow during high-risk percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The Controller monitors for alarms, displays real-time hemodynamic and catheter position information, and controls the Impella catheter.
