Why volunteer?

At Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, volunteers are an essential part of our health care team, helping us deliver compassionate, world-class care to our patients and visitors. Our volunteer program offers many rewarding and meaningful opportunities — from interacting with patients to assisting staff or providing administrative support.

Who can volunteer?

Volunteers are a diverse group of people — young adults, college students, stay-at-home parents, as well as professionals and retirees. As a values-based organization, we choose individuals with a strong work ethic and those who possess personal values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence.
