How do you build
a health-care facility? On the surface, the process is fairly straightforward: acquire land or a building, develop architectural
plans, and begin construction or renovation.
But building an institution requires more than bricks and mortar.
It requires a steadfast belief in and dedication to
the organization's mission that can stand the test
Christian Health Care Center (CHCC) was founded in 1911 by a group of deacons from local Reformed Churches. Today, CHCC - a non-profit organization open to anyone regardless of race, sex, or religion - provides a continuum of high-quality, family-centered elder-care and mental-health services in a compassionate and loving environment consistent with the Christian principles on which the institution was founded. Elder-care services include Heritage Manor, a 252-bed nursing home; Southgate, a special-care, 40-bed, inpatient nursing facility offering behavioral-management treatment; The Longview, an 80-unit assisted-living facility; Christian Health Care Adult Day Services of Wayne and Wyckoff; Hillcrest Residence, a 39-bed residence for independent seniors; and Evergreen Court, a complex of 40 apartments for independent seniors. Mental-health services include Ramapo Ridge Psychiatric Hospital, a full-service, 58-bed inpatient hospital for adult and geriatric patients, and its outpatient mental-health service, Christian Health Care Counseling Center; Ramapo Ridge Partial Program, a voluntary, short-term outpatient service; and Pathways, a partial-hospitalization program to treat adults who experience both a developmental disability and a co-existing psychiatric disorder.
