Does your club or organization need a speaker for your next meeting?

The BVMI Speakers Bureau will provide a speaker for your civic or service club, mom’s group, corporate lunch and learn or any other event in Bergen County.

Nine years ago – in November 2009 – BVMI opened the doors to the only healthcare center providing FREE primary care to low-income Bergen County residents who are working but have no insurance. We have an important story to tell about the role BVMI is playing to improve the life of our patients and create a healthier environment for all of us.

BVMI 2015 Annual Report


Finding cancer by accident--and just in time

A 50-year old woman, Lucy*, came to the BVMI Healthcare Center in very poor health complaining of discomfort in her chest. She had not been to a doctor in a number of years. 

As part of our quality assurance program, we require every woman over 40 years of age to have a mammogram. Lucy's indicated a growth that was later diagnosed as malignant.

BVMI was able to call upon a physician in our network of more than 300 specialists in the community to help Lucy obtain a biopsy and surgery for removal of the tumor.
