About Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine
The mission of Coachella Valley Volunteers In Medicine (CVVIM) is to provide primary health care services to low-income adults living in the Coachella Valley who have no insurance, or who are underinsured. CVVIM is the only no-charge health care clinic in the Coachella Valley. Services include medical and dental care, disease education, care management, homeless medical outreach and community referrals. Conditions seen most commonly include diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, all of which cause serious problems if untreated, but whose complications can be prevented with regular medical care. In addition to never charging a patient for medical or dental care, CVVIM also assumes all associated costs necessary for diagnosis and treatment of illness, such as laboratory tests, imaging and x-rays. Scores of dedicated volunteers – doctors, dentists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical and dental assistants and support volunteers, donate thousands of hours each year to accommodate more than 4,500 patient contacts a year. Since opening in 2010, CVVIM has provided more than 35,000 patient visits.
