We expect to serve 3,000 patients here in our first year.” • The majority of Zufall Health’s staff are bilingual, which helps them serve a larger segment of the population. For hours and appointments or to learn more about the health center, patients can call 973-862-6650. For more information, visit zufallhealth.org. •
