January 2015, Shaare Zedek Medical Center: Impressive increase in medical activity as well as development and improvement of infrastructure

 
The Shaare Zedek Medical Center continues its growth momentum and has turned into a large and leading hospital. During the past year the Emergency Room of the hospital has treated around 142'000 patients and is the largest in the area. More than 22,000 babies were born during that period, placing Shaare Zedek (along with Bikur Cholim Hospital) in a leading position worldwide.
 
During the year, the hospital continued to evolve. We opened the new Maternity Ward, the new nursery and our advanced NICU, with a masterful staff and the best equipment. We also opened our new women's clinics. This year we will open the rest of the "Next Generation Building", including the new Children's Hospital.
 
There are over 30 hospitalization departments and 70 ambulatory units and clinics in Shaare Zedek Medical Center. We are proud to present our patients with advanced medicine and a warm, personal, welcoming approach.
