The Mission of Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative, Inc. is to provide free primary medical care and, where possible, referrals to free specialty care for working, low-income Bergen County residents who have no health insurance.

Our Vision is to improve the health and well-being of those we serve, reduce the use of hospital emergency services, and serve as a model of improving access to healthcare through volunteerism.

Our Values promote that healthcare is a right, not a privilege. We treat patients and one another with dignity, respect and compassion, and we strive to meet the highest standards of medical practice.



Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability or age.  This policy of non-discrimination applies to hiring of personnel, election of board member, provision of services to patients, contracting for purchasing services and all other activities of BVMI.
