Bnai Zion Medical Center Ranked #1 in Country
A recent survey of 11,000 people conducted by the
Israeli Ministry of Health concluded that among the medium size hospitals
(200-800 beds), the Bnai Zion Medical Center received the highest score for
patient satisfaction with 81%. Hospitals were also evaluated based on their
physical conditions. The Bnai Zion Medical Center and Hadassah were ranked first
in the medium size category as well.
"The situation is not if we'll suffer another missile attack, but when.
We must be prepared." --Amnon Rofe, MD CEO, Bnai Zion Medical Center
Funds are needed to build a new protected underground emergency department in the
Bnai Zion Medical Center in Haifa, Israel. 100% of all designated gifts will be transferred to the hospital.
The Bnai Zion Medical Center is a leading urban hospital that serves the communities of northern Israel, providing compassionate care without regard to one's ethnicity, religion or economic background. More than 64,000 visits are made annually to its emergency department, where all patients, including citizens injured in terror attacks, have received exceptional treatment. The Medical Center was the frontline hospital during the Second Lebanon War of 2006.
History has shown the rockets of Israel’s enemies are aimed at its citizens and Israel’s hospitals are particularly targeted. Because the emergency room remains vulnerable to attack, building a new, protected underground unit fortified against nuclear, biological, and chemical attack is the priority of the hospital.
This state-of-the-art facility will be designed to have 30 beds, 2 trauma rooms and 6 professional clinics, as well as a protected hospitalization department for ongoing care with 90 beds and a complete range of services, treatment rooms, doctors’ offices, a pharmacy, storage and other features at a cost of $8 million. Helping now means the new protected ER will save lives in the near future.
