The Volunteers In Medicine Clinic seeks to understand and serve the health and wellness needs of the medically underserved and their households living in the greater Eugene/Springfield area.
The clinic’s service to its clients is built around the concept of a Circle of Caring, which is best described as love freely given in an environment where care is respectfully and lovingly rendered. We believe that both the caregivers and the recipients of care can be healed and nourished together. Services are provided in a non-judgmental, friendly environment designed to increase our patient's sense of personal responsibility and self-reliance.
The essence of this philosophy is to optimize the healing environment and improve outcomes for the medically underserved in our community. The structure and process of the clinic is based on people's needs, viewed from a holistic perspective, recognizing the dignity of each individual. We aim to give voice to the population we serve. The clinic has close working relationships with other agencies and institutions, and assists clients in affiliating with other care providers. We emphasize health education and prevention. Mutual appreciation and support among team members is the cornerstone of our culture.
