New patient registration hours at VIM

Volunteers in Medicine on Hilton Head Island will now register new patients at the clinic from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.

Once registered, new patients can make appointments for free health services at the clinic at 15 Northridge Drive. Patients already registered at VIM are not affected by the new policy, according to a news release.

To be eligible for free health care services, people must live or work on Hilton Head or Daufuskie islands -- or be the dependent of someone who does -- for at least three months. They must also be underinsured or uninsured and have a household income equal to or less than twice the federal poverty level.
