Our History

A focus on community and family-centered care is built into the DNA of North Ward Medical Arts.

Continuing the legacy of his parents (Drs. Alfonse and Svetlana Salerno), Dr. A G Salerno established the healthcare organization to merge the traditional healthcare approach of showing every patient family-like compassion with the modern diagnostic and treatment methods of the 21st century.

Prioritizing Preventative Care & Patient Experience

Medical arts is a multifaceted and interdisciplinary approach to healthcare that integrates various forms of artistic expression with the practice of medicine. This innovative field recognizes that healing extends beyond the physical aspect of health and encompasses the emotional, psychological, and even spiritual well-being of individuals. Medical arts also involve the creation of healing environments, such as aesthetically pleasing healthcare facilities, to promote a sense of comfort and calmness. All primary care and specialty office locations managed by Nirvana Healthcare Management are thoughtfully crafted by converting homes and mansions into medical facilities. By doing so, we not only provide exceptional medical care but also create a warm and comforting environment that feels like home. Our dedicated approach ensures that patients receive the highest level of care and comfort, surpassing the sterile and impersonal setting of traditional hospitals. In essence, medical arts recognize the profound connection between creativity and well-being, offering a holistic approach to healthcare that fosters healing, resilience, and improved quality of life for patients.

Expanding Compassionate, Comprehensive Care In Essex County
