Volunteer for Mission of Mercy

Thanks to our volunteer-based, physician-centered model of service, Mission of Mercy is able to treat large numbers of patients in a dignified and comprehensive manner with a small paid staff. All volunteer and paid physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners have an active license and are either already insured or covered through Mission of Mercy’s medical malpractice policy.

Mission of Mercy’s physician volunteers often sign up to work at the same clinic each month, allowing for development of a strong doctor/patient relationship. In addition to doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses, other volunteers include interpreters, registration workers, hospitality workers, drivers, and data entry personnel.  If you would like to become a volunteer, call JD Leza 361-883-5500 x 114 and leave a message.
