On behalf of the Board and staff at VIM, I wish you a heartfelt holiday weekend. We hope that all VIM supporters, volunteers and friends are healthy and well. Although it will be difficult to social distance when everyone wants to be near their family and friends, let's have hope for a safe future and getting back to normalcy.
VIM is open, with a focus on telehealth services, to ensure our patients receive critical medical care and behavioral health services during this challenging time. We predict an influx of new patients in the coming months due to thousands of residents of Luzerne County losing their jobs, receiving unemployment compensation, small businesses closing and the loss of health insurances. Our doors will be open and our hands outreached to help our low income neighbors!
We thank all the friends, supporters and volunteers that have reached out to the staff at VIM to offer a helping hand and caring heart. Patients have also reached out to send best wishes and blessings. We miss the camaraderie of seeing everyone each and every day, but please know that our mission forges on and our patients continue to receive immediate, quality health care.
Kelly L. Ranieli
