For more than 20 years, Main Line Today’s pages have featured the best and brightest people working in our region’s healthcare fields. CVIM is honored to have been selected as the 2018 beneficiary for the Healthcare Heroes event on May 16th. Do you know a healthcare hero who is saving lives, creating positive change for patients, volunteering and advocating for healthcare or fighting disease? Main Line Today is seeking nominations for individuals in all healthcare settings – hospitals, home healthcare, health centers, clinics, schools, health departments, long-term care, emergency services, medical practices, etc.
A specially selected panel of judges, along with Main Line Today editorial staff, will assess each nominee and select the 2018 Healthcare Heroes profiled in the May issue. Each Hero will be celebrated at the awards luncheon, with a top honoree announced for each category.
We are so excited to be a part of this special event!

We’ve been selected among an incredible group of organizations as finalists for The Henry Schein Cares Medal for excellence in expanding access to health care for the underserved. Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein, Stanley M. Bergman, said, “Throughout our company’s history, we at Henry Schein have been guided by the principle that everyone, regardless of their economic standing or personal circumstances, deserves quality health care. These nine organizations share that idea and embody a spirit of generosity that deserves recognition, and we are proud to honor them with the Henry Schein Cares Medal.” CVIM is honored to be among the finalists and thankful to all of our volunteers, donors and community partners who make it possible for us to carry out our mission each day!
For adults, Community Smiles will take place on February 24th from 8:30am – 12:30am. Harcum’s Sigma Phi Alpha dental hygienists will be treating patients to remove plaque and provide x-rays and fluoride treatments.

CVIM has been featured as Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Charity! Check out Parade Magazine’s article “From Alabama to Wyoming, Outstanding Charities in Every State” “If you’re sick or injured and don’t have insurance or money for a doctor, Community Volunteers in Medicine has your back. Since 1998 it’s offered primary medical care, dental services and free prescription medications to the uninsured and families with incomes less than 300 percent of poverty level in Chester County. Last year some 4,000 patients received help, including almost $4.3 million worth of medications and supplies.”
