Sinai's satellite opera-
tions, a rehabilitation center
in West Bloomfield and a
resonance imaging center in
Farmington Hills, are filled
to capacity these days, Mr.
Sheingold said.
"They are absolutely
overwhelmed with patients.
That's another sign that the
medical community has con-
fidence in what Sinai has to
deliver."
The relatively low Jewish
patient census, however,
remains a thorn in the
hospital's side, although it
doesn't seem to bother Mr.
Sheingold. "The Jewish

housekeeping is better, he
said.
"The attitude is exciting
now. It's the difference bet-
ween something growing
and something decaying."
According to Mr. She-
ingold, who assumed Sinai's
helm last January, the key
to Sinai's situation today is
the renewed confidence it
has earned in the commun-
ity.
"Last year, the Heritage
Ball demonstrated that the
(Hospital) Guild, the board
and the medical staff sup-
ported this institution and
raised $400,000. I think that
was the beginning of the
resurgence of Sinai
Hospital."

community is slowly coming
back on the bandwagon," he
said.
Jewish patients are in-
creasing at about the same
rate as non-Jewish patients.
Sinai admitted 2,300 Jewish
patients last year, 15 per-
cent of its 18,000 patient
total. Figures for the first six
months of 1992 reflect the
same percentage.
"It's always been between
13 and 17 percent," said
Karen Hyruciak, a hospital
spokeswoman, and never
higher than 22 percent even
before the Jewish population
moved away from the
hospital area.
As for the future, Mr. She
ingold predicted a steady re-
covery. "I think next yea
will mimic this year," he
said. "Your goal is to remain
a little beyond what you put
into capital spending so you
can (invest and) replenish
your reserves."
Sinai's profit represents a
3.7 percent margin above its
costs, a percentage Mr. She-
ingold termed reasonable.
"The average U.S. hospital
runs between 3 and 5 per-
cent," Mr. Sheingold said.
And since "costs are con-
tinually escalating in the
health care industry, espo--
cially non-salaried areas," '
he said, "Sinai will probably
run in that range." ❑

local organization
that benefits the de-
velopmentally
disabled has received a
major grant from the Max
M. Fisher Jewish Commun-
ity Foundation.
Keshet, the West Bloom-
field-based organization for
parents of special-needs
children, was awarded
$27,372 to create new sup-
port groups, develop new
programs and increase
awareness about the needs
of the disabled.
Keshet's plans include in-
creasing the number of
facilitator-led support
groups where parents,
grandparents and siblings
can discuss relevant issues;
the development of a parent-
to-parent program where
participants assist other
families with disabled mem-
bers; the creation of a mon-
thly newsletter and a 24-
hour hotline; and designing
family programming
centered on the Jewish holi-

days.
Headed by Ronelle Grier, a
mother of a young child with
developmental disabilities,
Keshet of Detroit is part of a
national association that
started in 1983 in Chicago.
The group was started by
parents concerned about the
limited number of Jewish
services available to families
of the disabled.
Today, Keshet of Detroit
comprises a 14-member.
board of directors and has
hosted such programs as a
model seder and a Saturday
night parents' social. Among
the groups with which it has
worked are the Jewish
Community Center's Special
Needs Committee, Hillel
Day School, Temple Israel,
the Jewish Association for
Residential Care, Jewish
Experiences For Families
(JEFF), and the Agency foL
Jewish Education.
Upcoming programs in-
clude a Sept. 16 speech by
Barbara Halpern, who will
discuss "Managing stress ,'
when there is a person with
special needs in the family,"
and a family Sukkot event.
