Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine (LVIM) provides free, high-quality outpatient medical, dental, and mental health care to the working uninsured of Polk County in a compassionate manner.

LVIM is a volunteer-run medical clinic where patients gain a medical home and have access to doctors' visits, dental and ophthalmological care, lab work, in-house x-rays and ultrasounds at no charge. More extensive diagnostics, such as CT's and MRI's, are also available through a network of participating ancillary providers who volunteer their facilities, staff and professional time at no charge to LVIM or the patients. Additionally, LVIM's full-service pharmacy provides patients with a formulary of generic medications as prescribed by volunteer providers and a Prescription Assistance Program provides high-cost medications at no cost to LVIM patients.
