Service Organizations

With a long history of service excellence, the Houston Methodist Hospital Auxiliary and the Houston Methodist Hospital Service Corps provide unique volunteer opportunities – from assisting patient visitors to raising funds to support the hospital.


Pictured below are members of the Service Corps.

The letters MHSC of the insignia worn on the uniforms signify for the members a deeper meaning: Ministering, Helping, Serving, Caring.
