Road to Recovery
Patients with more serious or complicated medical issues are provided with additional support by our team. After an initial evaluation, our Patient Navigator can accompany patients to doctor appointments, assess their health insurance and help them cope with any stress associated with their diagnosis.
Promoting good health and educating the community about important and relevant health issues have been a main mission at SBH. Every year, we provide free wellness seminars by well-noted physicians, CPR workshops and our life-saving annual health screenings, testing in glaucoma, skin cancer, mammography, hearing, cardiac and prostate cancer.
Hospital Relations Program
The Medical Division is proud of our close relationships with the best hospitals across the tristate. We have taken a leadership role in representing the entire community to all major hospitals who share our mission of recovery through sincerity and compassion. The Medical Division name is well-known by the best hospitals in the world because of our professionalism in all our endeavors towards community health care. In cooperation with the Sephardic Hospital Fund, we meet with hospital presidents and administrators to forge a personal relationship built on camaraderie and shared values. Our mutual respect allows us the humble opportunity to count so many great hospitals amongst our closest friends.
Our website features a wealth of hospital information for patients and their families during their stay in New York, New Jersey, Florida and major cities around the world.

“ The degree of professionalism and conscientious thought that SBH puts into each individual is remarkable, requiring a significant level of sophistication and care. SBH’s efforts have changed the community’s ability to find the correct physician for the specific problem, always looking for the best of the best. ”

“ SBH found me top physicians and hospitals for every situation. I was always able to get in touch with a kind and caring voice- there was always compassion on the other end. May I never need them again, but it is certainly reassuring to know that they are there. ”
“ Whatever the illness, whatever the background, they respond to what would be helpful to the particular patient. We admire the excellence in everything SBH does including the personal care and supportive care. ”
