Volunteers in Medicine, Chattanooga would not be possible without the hundreds of devoted volunteers dedicated to our mission of healing. Our volunteers are the heart and soul of all that we do here at the Clinic. From the screeners, interpreters, nurses, physicians, schedulers, and others, a patient often sees more than 10 caring individuals during a visit to the Clinic.
On average, 15-18 volunteers serve approximately 30 patients each and every clinic session. Each year, 16 volunteer physicians, 31 nurses, 6 lab techs, and 44 other medical and lay volunteers make the decision to dedicate their time and their talents to VIM Chattanooga.
This passionate group of volunteers offered 7,320 hours of service annually to helping others in need, making possible more than 5,026 patient visits.
Our dedicated team of compassionate volunteers all share common qualities. They enjoy interacting with a variety of people, are passionate about helping those in need, and serve with hearts of caring and compassion. They have positive attitudes and share a common commitment to care for our needy patients with dignity, courtesy, and thoughtful consideration.
