Media Advisory:
Holy Name Medical Center Asian Health Services
to Launch Japanese Medical Program

Holy Name Medical Center Asian Health Services will hold a news conference on Friday, January 27th at 12 pm to announce the launch of its Japanese Medical Program (JMP).

The JMP, modeled after the widely successful Korean Medical Program (KMP) started in 2008, joins the Chinese Medical Program (CMP), the Filipino Medical Program (FMP) and the KMP, all under the umbrella of Holy Name’s Asian Health Services.

As all sectors of the Asian population continue to grow in northern New Jersey, the Japanese community now numbers about 6,000 in Bergen County and 13,000 in New Jersey. The need for culturally-sensitive medical care was recognized by the administration and staff at Holy Name Medical Center, who created the Japanese Medical Program (JMP) to address the demand.
