In short – Data for 2013 – Shaare Zedek Medical Center
January 2014, 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 130,000 patients and is the largest in the area. Nearly 21,000 babies were born during that period, placing Shaare Zedek (after its merger with Bikur Holim Hospital) in a leading position worldwide.
During the year, the hospital continued to evolve. The PET-CT unit was opened with a leading team and a technologically advanced medical device. In addition, development continued during the year and significant progress was made in building the "Next Generation Building". At the beginning of 2014 a Maternity and Newborn department was opened as well as the advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. We anticipate that at the end of the year, the Children's Hospital will also move into the building.
New clinics were opened during the year, and first class doctors and nurses joined our outstanding staff, including several new department heads. We also had great success in medical research.
In the Shaare Zedek Medical Center there are over 30 hospitalization departments and 70 ambulatory units and clinics. We are proud to present our patients with advanced medicine and a warm, personal, welcoming approach.
