Since 2010, VMSN has provided high-quality, comprehensive health care to members of our community who need our help. These individuals are typically low-income earners whose jobs don’t include access to health insurance.

As a nonprofit health organization, VMSN provides care and support at no cost to these individuals who are falling through the cracks of our health system. We are able to do so because of the many caring health care practitioners and other individuals who volunteer their time to help our neighbors in need, and because of the generous financial and in-kind service contributions given each year by businesses, foundations and individuals.

Our Vision

To ensure every man, woman and child in Southern Nevada has access to health care.

Our Mission

To provide quality health care and support for people without access to health care in Southern Nevada within a culture of compassionate caring.

Our Values

Working with one another as a part of a team, treating fellow staff members with respect and acknowledging that each staff member is a valuable member of the whole.

Treating those we serve and with whom we work with compassion, demonstrating a high regard for the dignity and worth of each person.

Working in accordance with the urgency of situations that may arise, making sure matters are prioritized and taken care of in a timely manner.

Going beyond expectations of one’s duties in order to serve our patients in the best way possible.

Being honest and communicating clearly, demonstrating the ability to communicate in a way that fosters a shared understanding.
