Community Volunteers in Medicine (CVIM) provides free coordinated healthcare to low-income individuals and families who have no other place to turn for care in the Chester County region. As a non-profit, supported 100% through philanthropy, we are committed to remaining the safety net provider for medical, dental care in our community.
Patients have access to both primary and specialty medical and dental care, behavioral health services and free prescription medications through CVIM's medical home model of care. Compassionate, comprehensive, coordinated care is provided to each patient in our healthcare center. Lab work, radiology, cancer care, surgeries and other specialized care are coordinated in partnership with medical and dental partners in the community, including Main Line Health and Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital.
CVIM's 435 volunteers provided care to nearly 4,000 patients in the Chester County region last fiscal year. Our patients are hard-working, low-income individuals who are often making too much to qualify for government medical assistance, but not earning enough to pay for private health insurance on the exchange while providing for themselves and their family. Neighbors taking care of neighbors is part of CVIM's mission to provide healthcare, hope and healing to individuals, families and our community at large. Together, we are saving lives!
