Our Mission

Baal Perazim focuses upon Health Equity strategies that promote wellness and health for all, regardless of race, age, gender or other social determinants.

We believe that the assets needed to promote wellness should be distributed equally to all Chicagoans. We believe that the lack of appropriate resources facing many Chicagoans has led to profound and unacceptable health disparities.

We are committed to ensuring that our clients attain their highest level of well being, regardless of their background or socio-economic status.

Values

Baal Perazim Wellness & Health Services promotes and celebrates the ideals of Safety, Trust, and Transparency as the foundation our work is built upon.  Our team embraces the World Health Organization's definition of Health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

Vision

Baal Perazim Wellness & Health Services seeks to bring an end to profound and unacceptable health disparities among Chicagoans caused by a lack of appropriate resources.

What does Baal Perazim Mean?

Baal Perazim Wellness & Health Services is a place of wellness and breakthrough for all regardless of background or economic status. It is a place where people from all walks of life are empowered to take control of their health, and live long and productive lives.

A name can say a lot about a company—where it comes from, what it produces—but for us, Baal Perazim is far more than just a brand. The name embodies the soul and spirit of who we are, what we strive be, and what sets us apart from traditional healthcare providers.

Baal Perazim (ba-al peh-raw-tseem) means “breakthrough”, and is the site of an Old Testament victory gained by David over the Philistines (2 Samuel 5:20).
