WELCOME TO VOLUNTEERS in MEDICINE

Volunteers in Medicine is a non-profit, community based organization developed to help meet the primary health care needs of the working uninsured and the underinsured populations in Schuylkill and Carbon Counties, Pa.

Our Mission:

Volunteers in Medicine is a non-profit, community based organization developed to help meet the primary health care needs of the working uninsured and the underinsured populations in Schuylkill and Carbon Counties, Pennsylvania. The program is designed to provide free primary and preventative health services for those individuals who are employed but have no access to or cannot afford health insurance.

Our Story:

In 1994, Dr. Jack McConnell brought a group of medical professionals together to create the first Volunteers in Medicine Clinic in Hilton Head, South Carolina. There are currently over 90 Volunteers in Medicine Clinics located throughout the United States. The Volunteers in Medicine Clinic model relies on retired and practicing medical professionals to serve individuals and families who have no access to ongoing healthcare, typically the working low income.

Mission Statement:

Vision Statement:

​May we have eyes to see those rendered invisible and excluded; open arms and hearts to reach out and include them; healing hands to touch their lives with love; and, in the process, heal ourselves.

Volunteers in Medicine is now welcoming volunteers to come through the clinic’s doors, giving their time and expertise to care for our patients. We are always in need of additional volunteers...WE NEED YOU!
