• Greater Bergen Community Action

Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative

In November 2009, the Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative (BVMI) opened its doors as the only healthcare center to provide free primary care to working, low-income Bergen County residents who don’t have insurance. BVMI improves health and well-being of the people in Bergen County, reduces the use of hospital emergency services, and serves as a model of improving access to healthcare through volunteerism.
