As a health care organization, it is important for UF Health Jacksonville to protect its patients and comply with standards set by regulatory agencies. We set a high standard of excellence because our volunteers directly interact with our customers and are ambassadors for our hospital in the community. It is solely the discretion of UF Health Jacksonville to accept or deny a volunteer applicant.
