VIM San Diego is celebrating eight years of caring for the uninsured population of East County.  We could not have accomplished all that we have without the assistance of so many along the way.

Thanks to the Members of the Chapel of the Valley Methodist Church, under the Chairmanship of Mr. Stuart Harvey whose communication, engineering and personal skills have helped us succeed.

  • Pastor Jim Seaton

  • Jeanette Kincaid
  • Wanda LeClair
  • Don and Jean Pearce

In 2004, when VIM was still a concept and not a reality – so many gave advice and helped us:

  • Rev. Arthur Sueltz, who made our initial introduction to Dr. Jack McConnell and his Vision
  • Dr. Gresham Bayne, for taking that vision, nurturing it, and bringing it to fruition
  • Mr. John Pearson for his accounting expertise
  • Mrs. Elizabeth Daniels for her Board Membership and legal advice
  • Mr. James Harrigan, Esq. who gave us the most comprehensive Lease Contract for land use
  • Mr. Bruce Nash, for his marketing expertise and enthusiastic support in the early years
  • Councilmember Byron Wear for his generosity, both political and personal
