Corporate Partners Help BVMI Meet its Mission
Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative (BVMI) has received several recent gifts and grants to support its mission of providing free primary healthcare for low-income, working Bergen County residents who do not have insurance. These gifts, coupled with BVMI’s recent move to the new 5,000 square foot Lynn Diamond Healthcare Center in Hackensack, will ensure greater access to healthcare for the underserved, and allow BVMI to engage more volunteer medical professionals to deliver quality, compassionate care.
- A $10,000 grant from The Valley Hospital Foundation will be used to support BVMI’s nurse practitioner, whose presence is integral to the day-to-day operations of the healthcare center, providing continuity of care and the capability to accommodate urgent and sick visits.
- Long-time supporter TD Bank, a member of BVMI’s Champions Circle, awarded BVMI $12,500 to support operation of the new healthcare center.
- A $19,000 grant from the SUEZ Foundation was used to purchase and install upgraded technology at the Lynn Diamond Healthcare Center, which will enhance patient care and education.
Amanda Missey, president and CEO of BVMI, says “We are very grateful to our corporate partners – each and every one is pivotal to the day-to-day operations of our nonprofit. With them, we are able to provide vital, lifesaving healthcare and keep our neighbors in Bergen County healthy.”
