About Refuah


Refuah Health Center opened its doors in 1993 in response to a need in the community for top-quality healthcare. Since that time, we have grown exponentially into a full-service, integrated, multi-specialty healthcare organization. At Refuah we go beyond treating our patients; we strive to keep our community healthy by providing gold standard diagnostics, as well as patient education and support. The needs of our patients are our first priority.

Our mission is to provide high-quality, comprehensive medical, dental and supportive services to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Our vision is to eliminate social, economic and cultural barriers to the provision of top notch care.

Excellence in Comprehensive Clinical Care

Refuah employs leading clinicians in adult and pediatric primary care, as well as more than 22 specialties, collaborating to optimize the patient experience. Many of our doctors are nationally-renown, and are often consulted by outside providers for their expertise, or cited in professional literature.

In addition, we boast a large and highly regarded comprehensive dental program, as well as a fully-staffed and reputable behavioral and mental health division that is integrated into our primary care program.

We offer diagnostic radiology and laboratory services on-site, as well as a pharmacy, wellness center, and patient education outreach sessions.

There are 8 bus routes and 2 employee shuttles; In total, the shuttles account for 148 stops per hour.

Refuah is open 7 days a week, for incredibly extended hours. The number of hours patients can see a provider at Refuah exceed more than 100 hours per week. We welcome all patients, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Our staff are available to help patients negotiate the complexities of insurance coverage, or register for our sliding-fee scale.

Community Outreach

Serving and empowering the community was the impetus behind Refuah’s founding decades ago, and it remains integral to us, as we continue to grow and expand. As such, we prioritize collaboration with local leaders, educators, and social service organizations, and a broad array of community based organizations. The goal is to maintain open lines of communication in order to best serve the needs of our patients.
