Innovation at Work: HVCS’ New Yiddish-Speaking Care Manager

Because we’re always working to enhance our services and deliver quality care and access to everyone who needs it in the Hudson Valley, HVCS announces the creation of a new position to specifically serve the region’s Yiddish-speaking population. “Language and cultural sensitivity can be huge barriers to working with some communities,” said Saqib Altaf, HVCS’ Director of Client Services. “By tailoring our approach to outreach and hiring culturally-sensitive staff, we’re able to expand our services and offer help to those unable to connect with traditional healthcare providers.” Our new Yiddish-speaking care manager, Yossie Lebovic, started this month and works primarily with clients in Rockland and Orange counties.
