Volunteers perform many vital services for patients, families and staff at West Houston Medical Center and Sugar Land Diagnostic Center. Every month, our volunteers collectively donate more than 2,000 hours.

Adult Volunteers (above age 18)

Adult Volunteers help staff the information desks, gift shop, patient registration, surgery waiting rooms, and administrative departments. They guide visitors through the hospital, help with paperwork, create patient tray favors, stitch surgery recovery pillows, knit newborn hats, and so much more. Volunteers with a variety of skills and interests are always needed, although our greatest needs are in the gift shop and information desks. To find out more about our Adult Program and to apply:
