Volunteer at Stephenson Cancer Center

Compassion Ambassador Program

At OU Health Stephenson Cancer Center, we put patients first. Our dedicated clinical teams provide cutting-edge cancer treatments close to home to help reduce the burden of cancer in our state. Compassion Ambassadors serve in a variety of roles to provide comfort to patients in what can be the most challenging time of their lives. When we can nurture the patient and satisfy their simplest needs, they can turn their focus to the fight of their lives. Join the fight! You can help reduce their burden by giving your time and talents. Become a part of a diverse group of Compassion Ambassadors who enhance the patient experience.

Provide nourishment and support to patients as they receive lifesaving treatments in our infusion center or throughout the cancer center to patients and caregivers on their journey.

Be the first smile they see and the voice of welcome. Provide information, wayfinding and resources to patients and caregivers in person and on the phone as they navigate this difficult time. Organize and stock welcome and resource packets. Provide patients and staff with essential support. If you have a passion for customer service, this is a great opportunity for you.
