About Elly Kleinman

Born in 1952, as the son of two Holocaust survivals, Elly Kleinman grew up to become one of the leading health care executives. He graduated from Brooklyn College with a bachelor's degree in Psychology, and after that got his first job which happened to be in the home healthcare industry. With strong determination and high ambitions, he was able to create promising career in the healthcare industry.  After years of hard work, in 1982, Elly Kleinman made his biggest wish a reality, and founded The Americare Companies.
Soon, under his leadership, the company grew into one of New York’s biggest companies, providing healthcare services such as home healthcare and rehabilitation services, encompassing professional, paraprofessional and ancillary support services, and international nurse recruitment. For the past 30 years, Kleinman has served as the CEO and president, overseeing every business operation and division of the company. By supervising all aspects of management and strategy, he ensures that people are receiving high-quality, compassionate home care, rehabilitation and therapy services, as well as healthcare staffing programs.
Kleinman grew up in Borough Park, which is best known for its large Orthodox Jewish population. He is also a committed member of the Orthodox Jewish community, and so far he has funded and helped many charity organizations. Honored for both his professional success and philanthropic personality, he has received numerous awards. He is the founder of KFHEC, which was recently rebranded and renamed into Amud Aish Memorial Museum. It is the first museum of its kind, dealing not only with the historical aspect of the Holocaust, but also sharing the victims’ stories and experiences, and their struggle to maintain faith.
