Overview
When you become a volunteer at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford, you join a team of caring professionals whose mission is to improve the health of the people in the community they serve. Together with physicians on the medical staff, the vision is to be recognized by the community for faith-based care delivery, illness prevention and health education.

Staff
Volunteers of all ages, from teenagers to senior citizens, are an integral part of Texas Health HEB. By escorting patients, assisting nurses, operating The Gift Shoppe, staffing the information desks, offering clerical assistance, and providing a helping hand and warm smile for people in need, volunteers make a difference.

Volunteer Program 
Texas Health HEB is looking for people who have enthusiasm, a desire for challenge and a willingness to devote their time and energy to serving others. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older to participate in this program.

Volunteers are asked to commit at least four hours per week to volunteering, for approximately a six-month period. We also request that all volunteers wear a uniform while on duty so they can be easily identified by patients, staff members and other volunteers. Uniforms are available in the Volunteer Services department.

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 achieve a sense of accomplishment.

Volunteers are needed in these areas:

  • Admissions
  • Emergency department
  • Endoscopy department
  • Fitness center
  • The Gift Shoppe 
  • Guest services
  • Intensive care waiting area
  • Maternity waiting area
  • Nursing units
  • OB/GYN and surgical recovery
  • Occupational health department
  • Popcorn machine
  • Siratt Women's Center

Junior Volunteer Program
During the summer, Texas Health HEB opens up the volunteer program to students ages 14 to 18. Our Junior Volunteer Program places more than 70 students within different hospital departments where they learn about the different facets of health care in the community.

All returning junior volunteers are invited to participate in the program for the following year. If a person is interested in participating in the Junior Volunteer Program and they have not participated in the program before, they will need to place their name on the waiting list. The volunteer services department places names on the waiting list starting January first of each year. All requests received prior to or following the waiting list deadline will NOT be accepted.

Once returning junior volunteers have agreed to participate in the program again, the remaining junior volunteers will be chosen from the waiting list, on a first come, first serve basis. Returning junior volunteers do not need to place their name on the waiting list.

Applications are sent out to returning junior volunteers in April and to first-time participants in May. The interviewing process takes place throughout the month of May. If you are selected to participate in the Junior Volunteer Program, you must attend hospital orientation, which is normally held within the first week of June.

In some cases, junior volunteers have been allowed to continue their volunteer work throughout the school year. This is only possible if the junior volunteer has gone through the program and if the department is still in need of a volunteer.

There are many benefits to becoming a junior volunteer. In addition to helping others, junior volunteers have the opportunity to meet new friends, learn new skills, gain new insights and achieve a sense of accomplishment.

Junior volunteers are needed in these areas:

  • Admissions
  • Emergency department
  • Endoscopy department
  • Fitness center
  • The Gift Shoppe 
  • Guest services
  • Intensive care waiting area
  • Maternity waiting area
  • Nursing units
  • OB/GYN and surgical recovery
  • Occupational health department
  • Popcorn machine
