Cultivating A Seamless Patient Experience

As patient needs change, so should their physicians’ priorities. Nirvana Healthcare enables providers to produce better patient outcomes and deliver an enhanced customer experience. To achieve this goal, the organization looks at the entire clinical encounter, providing medical staff with effective processes that better equip them to deliver patient-centered care.

All providers take a proactive, preventive approach to diagnoses and treatments. They utilize healthcare report cards to track medical histories and detect when a person is at a higher risk for disease. Additionally, the providers take all insurance types to ensure more patients have access to quality health and wellness services — a feature that differentiates them from others in the sector.

Homey Healthcare Facilities

In a unique and patient-centered approach, all of our public health centers are thoughtfully designed within converted houses, creating an ambiance that is both personal and cozy. We’ve made a conscious decision to move away from the typical clinical setting of sterile doctor’s offices and instead offer our community an environment reminiscent of the comfort of home. Our health services managers, having received top-tier training in healthcare management services, played a pivotal role in this transformation, ensuring that the facilities harmonize the homey atmosphere with top-notch medical care.

The aim has always been to create medical centers where patients feel relaxed and cared for, ensuring they receive unparalleled healthcare services without the daunting feeling hospitals often evoke. This innovative approach has cemented our position in primary care, ensuring that patient care is not just about health but also about the emotional and psychological well-being of our community. Our dedication to healthcare management ensures that our facilities are compliant with all regulations while maintaining a warm, welcoming environment for everyone who walks through our doors.

The Importance of Primary Care

Primary care is the cornerstone of a robust healthcare system, ensuring that patients have access to timely and quality medical care in their community. This crucial sector is orchestrated by adept health services managers and supported by state-of-the-art healthcare management practices. Medical centers, doctor’s offices, and public health centers, as primary healthcare facilities, play a pivotal role in preventing hospitalizations, promoting public health, and ensuring efficient healthcare services. The emphasis on primary care, combined with cutting-edge healthcare technology and management strategies, is vital for a holistic approach to patient care and overall health outcomes.

History & Locations

Our Primary Care Centers

Nirvana Healthcare takes pride in offering superior primary care facilities to the community, focusing on the highest standards of patient care and healthcare management services. Our healthcare facilities are equipped with advanced healthcare technology, including electronic health records, ensuring seamless healthcare practices and efficient health information management. Nirvana Healthcare Management Services consists of five primary care locations where providers combine the principles of 20th– and 21st-century medicine to deliver holistic, comprehensive support.

Under the guidance of skilled health services managers, our staff members are trained to meet the ever-evolving demands of the healthcare industry. From doctor’s offices to larger medical centers, every healthcare facility within our organization is committed to excellence. While our healthcare organization believes in maintaining a standardized patient experience for all facilities, we also recognizes that everyone has distinct medical circumstances. Each brand is unique, catering to the diverse needs of each patient.

For convenience, laboratory services are available at all locations. We ensure that health professionals, from clinicians to healthcare administrators, are always abreast of the latest regulations, ensuring quality services for all patients. Our commitment is not just about offering medical care but also about shaping the future of health services management elevating the standards of primary care for all.

Our primary care practice is composed of the following organizations:

2001 - Salerno Medical Associates

Salerno Medical Associates is a second-generation practice with over 70 years of service to patients in Newark and East Orange, NJ. Dr. Alexander G. Salerno, a leading primary care physician and internist, brings a commitment to high-quality, customized care and patient well-being to the clinic.

The providers use advanced diagnostic methods and evidence-based treatment for population health and chronic disease state management. They stress patient education and preventative care while offering community-based programs, such as the Urban Healthcare Initiative Program (UHIP) which began in 2010, to serve more people in East Orange, NJ, and the surrounding areas.

2002 - Chop

Originally called SHOP (Senior Healthcare Outreach Program), the program was launched in 2002 by Dr. Alexander G. Salerno as a return to the traditional house-call program to serve seniors in the urban community specifically. It is the longest-running program of its type in the area, providing fully integrated primary care via house calls. In 2015, the program was renamed CHOP, or Community Health Outreach Program, and expanded services to include patients with mental illness and substance use disorder — populations long underserved in these communities.

The main goal of CHOP is to make quality, affordable healthcare accessible and convenient by reaching patients in the places they reside or congregate. These locations include private homes, senior residences, group homes, adult daycare facilities, and behavioral health centers. We also strive to save patients from unnecessary disease and illness, as well as unnecessary and costly hospital visits — which burden the healthcare system, too.

2014 - Metropolitan Medical Group

Established in 2014 across the street from Salerno Medical Associates, Metropolitan Medical Group was designed to expand primary care services for patients in East Orange, NJ. It focuses on redefining healthcare and caters to patients of different ages and with various needs. The physicians at this practice are skilled in diagnosing and treating multiple health issues. Besides primary care doctors, Metropolitan Medical Group also has a neurologist staff.

2015 - Roseville Medical Society

In 2015, Dr. Alexander G. Salerno joined the staff at Roseville Medical Society in Newark, NJ to assist his father-in-law, Dr. Raouf Elias in delivering high-quality care to patients. Since Dr. Elias’ passing in 2016, Dr. Salerno and a team of talented physicians continue to care for patients as they would family members at this location, spending ample time to promote good health and wellness and overall patient satisfaction. Doctors of medicine and osteopathic medicine offer preventative care services and treat numerous conditions, from common sicknesses to chronic diseases.

2020 - North Ward Medical Arts

Opened in 2021, North Ward Medical Arts follows a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare that fuses traditional and forward-thinking methods in diagnosis and treatment. It also provides specialty services not commonly found in Essex County, such as behavioral health, pain management and vein and vascular care. Like the other medical practices of Nirvana Healthcare, in-house screenings are also available.

All founded in 2021, these three specialty practices include:

2020 - Newark Vein And Vascular Center

Lutchman, MD, DABVLM, FACS, has more than 40 years of experience treating numerous vein conditions, from swollen legs to venous ulcers.

2020 - North Ward Behavioral Health Center

The providers at North Ward Behavioral Health Center put the needs of patients first in all cases. The team performs an array of treatment services for individuals with different behavioral health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, addiction, and sleep issues.

Prospect Spine and Pain offers minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment solutions for those suffering from chronic or acute pain across several areas of the body, including the back, elbows, hips, knees, neck, and shoulders. Taking a holistic approach to pain management, the providers strive to develop treatment plans that deliver relief and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.

2022 - Nirvana Healthcare Management

In 2022, Nirvana Healthcare Management Services added the Department of Population Health to their growing list of services. This segment furthers the goal of making high-quality healthcare accessible to the diverse region of Essex County by responding to unique patient needs. Additionally, Nirvana Healthcare Management Services is the only medical practice to receive a $500,000 grant from New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH).
