Sinai

Continued from preceding page

tient count was hovering
about 430 — still up by 50
from a year ago, officials
said.
Sinai in the coming weeks
plans to open a 25-bed
medical surgical unit, now
under renovation.
The mood at Sinai has
changed dramatically in two
years. The hospital reported
$8 million in profits this
year. It also expanded units
and greater numbers of doc-
tors have admitted more pa-
tients.
In 1990, the financially
strapped hospital was
fighting for its life. Sinai's
board members were con-
sidering selling the hospital
to Detroit Medical Center, a
move that could have
resulted in massive depart-
ment cuts or a closing of the
hospital. Sinai brought in a
consulting group, laid off
200 of its employees and re-
organized.
The latest census report
"is very encouraging for the
hospital," said Dr. Gerald
Loomus, a Sinai oncologist
and a former spokesman for
the now disbanded coalition
of doctors. "The hospital has
acquired quite a number of
new physicians, and it is
functioning much better
than it did a few years ago.

"This has made us feel"
good about the institution,"
Dr. Loomus said. "I think it
is going to survive."
Mr. Schaengold, who came
to Sinai in February from cz,
Kansas City, is focusing on
outreach to the Detroit and
Jewish communities.
At the Outer Drive site,
Sinai has set up a Center for
Clear Vision (for exams with
optometrists and to get fitted
for glasses and contact
lenses) and established
mammography suite with
two machines to accom-
modate more patients.
In the past year, the
hospital opened a family
practice unit, which now has `-)
23 physicians working on c
site. Additional doctors are
opening practices in the pro-
fessional building on Six
Mile Road, officials said.
Next on Sinai's agenda is
opening a family care clinic
by the end of the year at the
Park Woods Plaza at 10 Mile
and Coolidge in Oak Park.
Two full-time physicians
will be on site, Mr. Schaen-
gold said.
"We want to reach out to
the eastern side of the Jewish
community that is centered
around Oak Park and Hun- 7,
tington Woods," Mr.
Schaengold said. ❑

n October, a new freedom
will be bestowed on the
Jews of the former Soviet
Union — the freedom to
study Yiddish language, lit-
erature and folklore in a col-
lege setting.
Gershon Winer, director of
the Yiddish Teacher Edu-
cation Program at Tel Aviv
University, is heading the

curriculum in Moscow,
teaching 35 students
Yiddish. The program is be-
ing developed with the coop-
eration of Tel Aviv Univer-
sity and Tuoro College in
New York. Tuoro College
opened a school of Jewish
studies in Moscow in 1991.
Three years ago, Mr.
Winer was contacted by a
group of Russian students to
conduct a seminar on
Yiddish. It was the first
