Our Philosophy of Care

Community Health Care's philosophy of care was taught to us by one of our founders; Dr. George Tanbara.  His message of "Put the Patients first!" has always been the guiding force in how we treat patients. 

The second way this philosophy of care is expressed by Community Health Care is a constant striving to improve facilities and health care practices in order to provide the best possible care to our patients.  In addition, technology and health care regulations changes also impact how we provide care to our patients.  This "philosophy of care" is now championed by Dr. Elizabeth Friesema, Community Health Care's Medical Director.
