Rabbi Avrohom Susskind of the Novi/
Northville Center for Jewish Life will lead

Hospital in Novi.
To A. New Generation
Of Patient Care.
The new Providence Park Hospital is redefining healthcare.
As Providence Park Hospital, the
newest hospital for St. John Health,
sets to open in Novi on September
5, Rabbi Avrohom Susskind has also
set the stage to ensure that Jewish
patients' needs have been an integral
part of the planning process.
Two years ago, Rabbi Susskind and
hospital president Rob Casalou
began to explore opportunities. "I was
surprised at the level of commitment
to embrace the Jewish community
that Providence Park has shown,"
states Rabbi Susskind. "I found that
Rob was very sensitive and caring
when it came to talking about the
Jewish patient's needs on every level.
He was eager to have their concerns
met in a way that is comfortable for
each individual patient. He was open
to many ideas for making the Jewish
patient's experience as pleasant as
Imagine rooms so advanced they quickly adapt to your changing needs.
Take comfort in being treated by a specialized medical team during
your entire stay. Relax, knowing your vitals are being monitored by
vigilant caregivers, as well as by an advanced telemetry monitoring
system. Now imagine all of this on a campus that is more like
a nature preserve than a hospital. These and many other
great innovations are designed to make Providence
Park Hospital the safest hospital in Michigan.

Providence Park Hospital is set to
open for patient care the first week
in September, and brings together
innovative clinical care and new
technology as well as a focus on a
supportive, healing environment.
That environment will include
seminars for clinical staff led by the
Jewish chaplaincy, focused on issues
important to Jewish life and healing.
The focus of Providence Park
Hospital's Jewish chaplaincy is to
provide service at the level with which
patients are familiar. "It is important
that the Jewish community not
only feels welcome here, but that all
segments of the Jewish community,
regardless of their affiliation or
background, are able to receive the
kind of care for the needs which are
important to them," states Susskind.
The hospital has easy access directly
off of I-96 at the Beck Road exit 160.
The first day of patient care at the new
hospital will be September 5, 2008.
