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.

Care is provided by volunteer doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners and other clinicians.
