Who We Are and What We Do
The Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative, Inc., is a volunteer nonprofit organization providing free primary and preventive medical care to low-income working people in Bergen County without insurance or the means to pay for care.
BVMI is the only state-licensed ambulatory care facility in the county that offers free healthcare for individuals earning up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines who do not have health insurance.
"When you take care of a person's health, you are taking care of their family and their community as well".
-Dr. Samuel A. Cassell
