Lee County Volunteers in Medicine

County: Lee
Categories Health
Details:

Lee County Volunteers in Medicine (LCVIM) provides free, quality, primary healthcare services to the low-income, uninsured residents of Lee County, Florida.  LCVIM is part of the national Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) clinic network and adheres to VIM’s “Culture of Caring”.  Services are provided by a cadre of volunteer healthcare professionals such as physicians, mid-level providers, nurses, etc. and are available to those individuals who are uninsured and meet established eligibility criteria.

           

The VIM model promotes a “Culture of Caring” throughout the entire organization and is the heart and soul of a VIM clinic.  The “Culture of Caring” is based on an ethical standard in medicine that was once practiced and should be practiced again—How people are treated during a visit to the clinic is just as important as the medical care they receive.  The people who seek care at a VIM clinic are good people in need of help. 

 

Job Description:

 

There are many opportunites to work with LCVIM including front desk and receptionist positions working in the clinic as well as nursing assistants and eligibility/intake specialists.  We also offer opportunites in the administration office, such as marketing, communications, public relations, social media, volunteer management, fundraising, community relations, and health education.
