About

Our Optum Palliative and Hospice Care office is one is two hospices in San Antonio that is a certified as a Level 4 We Honor Veterans hospice through NHPCO. If you want to walk alongside of someone in their journey, please consider walking with a terminally ill Veteran, please call me at (210) 247-4461. Do you have Military experience and want to be part of our hospice team? Many of our terminally ill veteran patients do well with volunteers who are veterans and who have had military experience. Military history connects you like no other. Therefore, if you like to sit with a WWII veteran and/or a veteran of any tour or branch of service, please give me a call. The on-boarding process is worth it! Thank you for your service, Janet S. Garza, LMSW, Optum Palliative and Hospice Care Volunteer Coordinator
