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
