Volunteers at Texas Institute for Surgery are dedicated adult men and women from all backgrounds who share a common desire to help others. They get a first-hand look at what goes into high-quality health care through their efforts to extend hospitality to patients. Volunteers provide information to guests, visitors, and physicians, and they assist the professional staff.
Volunteers are asked to commit to at least one four-hour shift weekly, for a minimum of six months of service. Most opportunities are during the day on weekdays. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
There are many benefits to becoming a volunteer. In addition to helping others, volunteers have the opportunity to meet new friends, learn new skills, gain new insights and feel a sense of accomplishment. Volunteers will receive free parking. Free beverage and achievements are recognized once a year with an awards luncheon. Volunteering does not lead to employment.
All prospective volunteers must complete an application online. Prospective volunteers must also sign a statement of confidentiality and a release to run a criminal background check. Volunteers are also required to provide three references from outside of their families.
