Our Philosophy

Ezras Choilim Health Center is a community-based health center providing primary and specialty care, helping our patients prevent disease and maintain good health. Since 1998, we’ve been providing affordable, accessible, comprehensive medical services to thousands of otherwise underserved patients.

The mission of Ezras Choilim is to deliver patient centered care in a manner that is linguistically and culturally sensitive and tailored to the needs of the entire community we have the privilege of serving.

Mission Statement

The mission of Ezras Choilim is to deliver patient centered care in a manner that is linguistically and culturally sensitive and tailored to the needs of the entire community we have the privilege of serving.

 

At Ezras Choilim, our focus is on compassion, integrity and accountability. We provide every patient with the highest quality of care possible and emphasize a relationship-based approach that caters to the whole person. Our dedicated and compassionate team of professionals comes from culturally-diverse backgrounds and we share the common vision of providing our outpatient population with the best primary and preventative health care available.

 

Ezras Choilim services all those who might not otherwise have access to affordable medical care. We accept most commercial forms of insurance, Medicare and Medicaid and operate on a sliding fee scale. Most importantly, no one is ever turned away due lack of insurance or an inability to pay.

Our Vision

At Ezras Choilim, we view each patient holistically and truly care about the overall patient experience. We embrace a value driven approach to health care that is high-quality, comprehensive, and supported with best in class technology and people. Our philosophy is that partnering with patients and their families requires a thorough understanding and respect of each patient’s unique needs, culture, values and treatment preferences.

 

As part of our comprehensive approach, we coordinate care across all elements of the broader healthcare system, including access to additional specialty care, hospitals, home health care, and other community services. We collaborate with leading medical facilities and providers throughout Orange and Rockland Counties and beyond including Orange Regional Hospital, Nyack Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital and Montefiore Medical Center. In addition, we partner with Orange County’s Department of Health in order to facilitate population health management and improvement. Plans are also under way to join a regional health information exchange that will connect us to NYS Shin-NY Platform.
