GBCA Builds New Medical Clinic
Since 2009, Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative, a non-profit health care organization has deployed the talents and skills of volunteer doctors, nurses and medical professionals in service to those in our community who have no health insurance.
BVMI’s partnership with GBCA was central to its early success, when GBCA built for BVMI, a new state of the art health clinic at 241 Moore Street in Hackensack. This home has been ground zero for meeting the health care needs of 1000 people annually through a network of over 200 specialists.
As momentum has built for the revitalization of downtown Hackensack, GBCA has plans to repurpose in Main Street property by building a new residential and retail building in what currently houses the BVMI clinic. Thus, BVMI is once again in need of a new home and once again, GBCA is pleased to step up to the task.
As we speak, GBCA’s construction team is building a brand new, expanded clinic for BVMI at 75 Essex Street in Hackensack. It will include six exam rooms, three doctor consult rooms, a nurse’s station, a lab, medical records room and a secure medication storage along with reception and patient waiting rooms.
“I think BVMI is one of the most impressive organizations I have seen in my 30 years of community-building work,” remarked GBCA CEO Bob Halsch. “It is just such partners that President Lyndon Johnson contemplated that we invest in when he created Community Action at the drawing of the War on Poverty.”
VMI’s Executive Director, Amanda Missey, commented “GBCA was with us at the beginning when we had so much energy and commitment, but no place to actually serve our patients. Our two organizations have a shared mission and values and we are natural partners in our mutual pursuit of a more healthful and vital life for all in our community.”
