CVIM’s 20th Anniversary year was filled with gratitude and celebration as we honored all those who helped make possible two decades of providing free healthcare to our shared community.
We are here today because of the friendships and bonds we have with the people we serve, the volunteers who go above and beyond and our staff and Board of Directors who work tirelessly to further our mission. CVIM is supported 100% through philanthropy and with the generosity of our donors and community partners we have been able to respond to growing community need over the last 20 years.
In 2018 we celebrated 20 years of CVIM volunteers at our Volunteering is a Work of Heart event including 9 dedicated individuals who have been with us since we opened our doors in 1998. At our 20 Years of Caring celebration we honored our donors and welcomed 21 new exceptional members into our Pillar Society.
I thank you for your sustained support of CVIM and enabling us to enrich our shared community with healthcare, hope and healing to strengthen the quality of life for all.

Received Dental Care
for Healthy Smiles
As providers of free comprehensive dental care for uninsured adults, children and seniors in the Chester County region, we are keenly aware of the unmet need to increase access to dental care to prevent serious, emergent and chronic/acute illnesses and infections that arise from dental neglect.
CVIM provides free dental services in our 7-operatory dental suite in our healthcare center, as well as 2 satellite outreach sites; one serving Latino adults in St. Rocco’s Center in Avondale and a second site for uninsured seniors at Surrey Services for Seniors in Devon.read patIEnt storY

Sensitive Health Care
Many women are good at taking care of others, but when it comes to their own health they put their children, spouse, aging parents, jobs and household duties before their own health. To ease this burden, CVIM provides easily accessed comprehensive Women’s Health Clinic days where they can receive both preventative care and treatment, including: gynecology exams, PAP tests, colposcopies, endometrial biopsies, family planning, procedures, counseling, HIV testing and more.
CVIM provided 2,281 women with coordinated, culturally-sensitive care through examinations, mammography, testing and procedures during the 2018 fiscal year.read patIEnt storY
