COME JOIN OUR TEAM OF VOLUNTEER MEDICAL INTERPRETERS!

BVMI provides free primary healthcare to low-income Bergen County residents who do not have health insurance. Our patients come from many different backgrounds, so we are always in need of interpreters.

BVMI is looking for special volunteers to help interpret for patients and practitioners.

We are primarily in need of Spanish speakers, especially those with a medical background. However, other languages, including Korean, are also needed.

Please visit www.BVMI.org or contact Elaine Posner - eposner@bvmi.net for more information!

We hope to welcome you to our team soon!

Mission Statement

Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative provides FREE primary care to low-income, working Bergen County, NJ residents who do not have health insurance. Our goal is to keep our patients out of the emergency room. We believe that how people are treated during a visit to BVMI’s Healthcare Center is as important as the medical care they receive.

Description

BVMI is a nonprofit healthcare center which opened in November, 2009. In 2017, we served over 1,200 patients in more than 7,000 visits. Care is provided by volunteer doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners and other clinicians. BVMI is supported solely through contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations and is one of 100 Volunteers in Medicine clinics in the US. We recently were awarded the Platinum status on Guidestar--a premier authority on non-profit organizations. Check us out! https://www.guidestar.org/profile/20-2633437
