Dr. Florence Jameson
Board of Directors
Nevada Medical Center
Dr. Florence Jameson has spent her life dedicated to family, healthcare, and community. She attended the UCLA School of Medicine, where she earned her medical degree, and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, 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 a private practice in Las Vegas and has been a solo practitioner for the past 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 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 the 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 first-hand 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 healthcare 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 as 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 that will provide quality healthcare, one person, at a time in a culture of caring.
