Volunteers in Medicine, Chattanooga, Inc. (VIM Chattanooga) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) primary care clinic. Volunteer physicians and nurses provide free medical services to financially eligible adults who are uninsured. 

The mission of the VIM Chattanooga Clinic is to understand and serve the health and wellness needs of the medically underserved in our community by providing quality, compassionate and personalized care in a faith-based caring environment.

Our patients are why we exist. And every person we serve, be you a patient or a volunteer, is worth the care we give.

Good Morning!

It's time to share the results from the VIM BandAid Benefit - a net amount of ***$43,500*** was raised by all you wonderful people who support your friends and neighbors without health insurance. AND, donations are STILL rolling in - THANK YOU!

The return on this investment in your community is $172,159 at clinic rates and $860,793 at very conservative emergency rates. We will be able to provide more than 500 people with healthcare - THANK YOU!

We'd also like to thank March Adams & Associates, Inc., Consulting Engineers and Christ Church for underwriting the evening, Voices of Lee for providing the best entertainment, La Familia Mexican Restaurant for excellent food, and Abba's House for fantastic help in making it all happen!
