Since 1955, University Health System has offered quality healthcare to the residents of Bexar County, South Texas, and beyond. The mission of University Health System is to promote the good health of the community by providing the highest quality of care to both inpatients and outpatients, by teaching the next generation of health professionals and by supporting research, thereby, advancing medical knowledge and improving the delivery of patient care.
University Health System and the Volunteer Services Department view volunteers as a vital part of the team and take great pride in providing caring, dependable, and compassionate individuals to assist in various departments within our facilities throughout San Antonio.
Our exceptional volunteers assist patients with way-finding and answering questions at the information desk, delivering magazines to many department waiting areas, visiting with patients and families, filing, and much more.
A volunteer's time is always appreciated. Most opportunities are available year round and the Volunteer Services Department asks volunteers to commit to a minimum of four hours, one day a week.
