Embracing the Culture of Caring
Volunteers in Medicine is a national program with a history of success in other communities around the country. The first clinic, led by a group of retired medical professionals, was established in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Today, that clinic provides care for more than 20,000 patient visits a year and has served as a model for over 90 additional Volunteers in Medicine clinics in cities across the United States. The Esperanza Center Health Services Clinic is the first and only VIM Clinic to be established in the State of Maryland.
