Interfaith Medical Center is a member of One Brooklyn Health System, Inc. (OBHS). OBHS is a co-operator of Brookdale Hospital Medical Center, Interfaith Medical Center, and Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center. OBHS’s Mission Statement is “We provide greater access to high quality medical care and keep our communities healthy through an integrated care system that respects the diversity of our communities and addresses both the health needs and unique factors that shape them." OBHS member hospitals have strong, historic ties to the communities they serve. In recent years, OBHS member hospitals have supported participatory action research (PAR) projects with the residents of Central and Northeast Brooklyn to develop community-led research and recommendations to improve community health.
The PAR reports are a cornerstone of OBHS’ first joint community health needs assessment and community service plan as a hospital system. OBHS member hospitals abide by federal health laws included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and New York State Department of Health regulations requiring a community health needs assessment and community service plan once every three years. OBHS member hospitals have come together as vital anchor institutions and safety-net providers to develop a plan that aligns New York City, New York State and federal health requirements and initiatives with the health needs voiced by the Central and Northeast Brooklyn community.
