Peterson was built on the volunteer services of others. Join our family of volunteers who donate their time to help fulfill our mission. Whether you want to work one-on-one, with patients and visitors or prefer to serve the hospital behind the scenes, you will discover that volunteers really make an impact here.

Call our Volunteer Coordinator, Jane Harris at 830-258-7630 to learn more about the multitude of opportunities including:

  • Join the PRMC Auxiliary – From meeting and greeting at our front reception desk, working in our trendy gift shop, or assisting with hospital services such as the Ambulatory Care Center, Hospice, Home Care and Women’s Services to helping families of patients in our surgery waiting room, the Auxiliary supports our needs with a warm and sincere smile, while dedicating thousands of hours to support the hospital.

    – Patient Visitation- Floral Program
    – Bereavement Program – adult and children
    – Pathways – support and encouragement for patients whose diagnosis is two years or less
