Dr. Florence Jameson
Founder and CEO
Dr. Florence Jameson has spent her life dedicated to family, health care and community. She attended UCLA School of Medicine where she earned her medical degree and Cedar Sinai where she did her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
She is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. In 1985, she opened her private practice in Las Vegas and has been a solo practitioner for the last 27 years. She is an advocate for patients, their physicians and community health, having served as a member of the Clark County Medical Society for 27 years and as their past President. She is the immediate past President of the Nevada State Medical Association. Her love for patients and medicine has inspired her to strive for quality healthcare for all Nevadans regardless of their economic situation.
Dr. Jameson is founder and CEO of Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada (VMSN), a free health clinic dedicated to providing medical services to the uninsured who would otherwise have no access to medical care. Prior to starting VMSN, she opened a clinic at the Juvenile Justice Center of Southern Nevada to care for incarcerated young girls who would otherwise have no medical care.
Dr. Jameson knows firsthand what a big difference an altruistic medical provider can make. After her father went to prison, her mother struggled to provide for herself and her family. They never went without health care because a local physician assured her mother that he would take care of them regardless of their ability to pay. Dr. Jameson vowed someday to “pay it forward.”
She has been recognized by the community for her extraordinary accomplishments, receiving many awards and recognitions, including: the Sunrise Hospital First Humanitarian Award; the Red Cross Everyday Health Heroes award, the Harold Lee Feikes Physician of the Year Award for Community Service; Las Vegas Woman Magazine’s Best Doctor award voted by fellow physicians; and the Innovator Award by Nevada Business Magazine for Healthcare Heroes.
Dr. Jameson’s vision is that no child or adult will ever go to bed at night sick without much needed healthcare. Her mission is to bring the community together to create a safety net of clinics which will provide quality healthcare one person at a time in a culture of caring.
