Temecula Valley Hospital Staff Receives Jimmy Moore Citizen of the Year Award

The Kiwanis Club of Temecula Valley presented the Jimmy Moore Citizen of the Year Award to the Temecula Valley Hospital staff for the outstanding services and care provided to the citizens in the Temecula Valley.

Jimmy Moore was known by many as “Mr. Temecula” for having played a major role in the City of Temecula incorporation in 1989.  Jimmy was a 29-year veteran of the U.S. Army who served as a pilot in the Vietnam War, and was an Icon within the Temecula Valley Community.  Jimmy was a member of the Kiwanis Club of Temecula Valley, and they acknowledge his accomplishments by recognizing them annually with a “Citizen of the Year” award in his name.

“Each year our club presents this award to individuals, community service organizations or institutions that contributes to our community in an exceptional way. The Temecula Valley Hospital staff, management and facility certainly cover all three types of past recipients of this award,” said Mark Ward, President, Kiwanis Club of Temecula Valley.

“It is an honor to receive this very special award on behalf of our hospital staff,” said Darlene Wetton, Chief Executive Officer of Temecula Valley Hospital.  “Our Temecula Valley Hospital employees and the Kiwanis Club have our community at heart in everything they do.  What a wonderful way for our teams to come together to celebrate Jimmy Moore’s legacy of our region!”
