The Bnai Zion Medical Center, located in Haifa in the north of Israel, is a beacon of hope in the region and provides outstanding, vital care to area patients, regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or national origin. Unfortunately, the Medical Center is within range of rocket attacks from Lebanon and its emergency room is currently not properly fortified in case of such an attack.
After substantial fundraising efforts by Bnai Zion Foundation and the Bnai Zion Medical Center, combined with funding from the Israeli government, Bnai Zion Medical Center is set to begin construction on their new fortified emergency room in the next several months. This governmental funding is part of a larger effort to invest in education, health, and agriculture in the North, a large portion of which will be used to secure and reinforce area hospitals.*
Despite this imminent groundbreaking, funding for this important project is not yet complete. An estimated $2.5 million must be raised to meet Bnai Zion Foundation’s fundraising goal for the project, which will ensure that Bnai Zion Medical Center will be able to continue providing lifesaving care in the event of an attack.
