Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) provides healthcare on a donation basis to low-income, working adults who live in Central Oregon and have no medical insurance or means to pay for care. The clinic uses a community approach where 287 in-clinic volunteers and over 300 local medical partners collaborate to provide patients with necessary primary and specialty medical care, prescription medications, and mental health care. VIM's patients are 19 years and older. The majority have one or more chronic condition such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, or a mental health diagnoses. All of these conditions are manageable with medical oversight and access to care. Because of the dedicated efforts of our volunteers, every $1 raised is leveraged 6.76 times, generating $4,809,740 in health care services and community benefits per year.
