Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) Clinic of the Cascades provides healthcare on a donation basis to working adults in Central Oregon with no medical insurance or means to pay for care.
We use a community approach, where 300 in-clinic volunteers and over 350 local medical partners collaborate to provide patients with necessary primary and specialty medical care, prescription medications, mental health care, and/or basic dental care.
VIM's patients are age 19 - 64. The majority have one or more chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, or mental health diagnoses. All of these conditions are manageable with medical oversight and access to care.
This is where we come in. At VIM, patient costs of about $81.50 per month are funded by patient donations along with local and regional supporters.
There are many ways to become involved with VIM – as a patient, volunteer, partner, or donor. We invite you to join us!
