July 30, 2012 - Harris, N.Y. – On July 6, more than 40 members of the Orthodox Jewish community and Hatzalah, an Emergency Medical Services provider in Sullivan County, came to CRMC for an informational team-building session. CRMC provided a presentation about its services and held an open discussion as to how everyone could work together to provide exceptional services to the community.
Additionally, CRMC presented a plaque to Moshe Fried, CRMC’s summer liaison for the Orthodox Jewish community. Fried has proven to be invaluable to CRMC, as he not only strengthens relationships with the Orthodox Jewish community, but also provides exceptional patient experiences to everyone who comes through CRMC’s Emergency Department. Fried has decided to further his medical education in Israel, and CRMC wishes him the best of luck. The plaque will be placed in CRMC’s Chesed room, a room where members of the Orthodox Jewish community can sit, relax and pray. The Chesed room is equipped with kosher snacks, packaged meals, Jewish reading materials, tapes and other sources of information. The room is stocked by Chesed 24/7.
CRMC’s newly expanded and renovated Emergency Department at the main Harris campus is twice as large as it was before, and features eight treatment rooms for rapid assessment and care of minor injuries, 16 dedicated treatment rooms for serious injuries, new technology for diagnostic testing and advanced emergency care, bedside registration and more.
