The Jewish Health Organization (JHO) enables the delivery of exceptional and compassionate medical care to critically ill adults and children around the world. We are dedicated to comprehensively addressing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of the patients we serve.
Patients receive physician-driven referrals to leading hospitals and medical subspecialists at no cost. Expert second medical opinions can also be facilitated. Each of our referrals is made after one of our physician specialists has reviewed the medical record in granular detail, and direct physician-to-physician contact is then made to ensure an expeditious and seamless referral process. Once the patient is referred for medical care, our physicians and clinical specialists continue to remain engaged with both the patient and the care team, serving as advocates for patients and their families, helping them understand the myriad medical concepts and treatment options. While undergoing evaluation, treatment and convalescence, patients and their families can rest in JHO’s Harmony Homes, while having access to meals and other hospitality services. Medical transportation can also be facilitated during stressful circumstances. Patients can reach out to our empathetic medical community, as well as to our chaplains for support and bereavement services.
