Partners in Care

While most primary and specialty care at CVIM is provided by our volunteers and a small core staff within our West Chester location and two Mobile Dental sites in St. Rocco’s Parish, Avondale and Surrey Senior Center, Devon, we rely on our Partners in Care to provide additional services for our patients.

Our Partners in Care include:

  • Specialty physicians and dentists
  • Health and human service organizations
  • Outpatient centers
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Hospitals
  • Healthcare professional schools
  • School districts
  • Local nonprofits

Area physicians and dentists offer to see our patients for advanced specialty care procedures such as eye injections or allergy testing at no charge or at a reduced fee. Local hospitals supply lab and radiology testing at no cost. If surgery or hospitalization become necessary, CVIM works with the hospitals, providers to ensure patients receive the care they need and deserve. Pharmaceutical companies and hospitals donate medications, enabling patients to receive free medications from our dispensary.

Local  nonprofit organizations that are filling critical roles in the community, such as food banks, domestic violence centers, and homeless shelters, partner with CVIM to accept our referrals and to send us people they encounter who are in need of our services. CVIM is also affiliated with numerous medical, dental and healthcare profession colleges and universities.  Students volunteering at the clinic under the supervision of licensed healthcare professionals receive valuable on the job training and experience.  Our professionals strive to instill a spirit of volunteerism in each student so that they will continue to give back to their communities as their careers progress.
