The Pediatric Day Hospital at Shaare Zedek Medical Center is one among the first care centers in Israel to provide multi-disciplinary treatment under one roof for children suffering from complex medical conditions. Combined, the different clinics treat about 10,000 children with chronic diseases annually.

The staff includes specialists in all aspects of Pediatric Medicine, experienced nurses, a dietician, social workers, a psychologist, an educational team including therapists from various fields and medical clowns. Advisors from other disciplines come when needed, such as pediatric surgeons, orthopedic experts and anesthesiologists. Furthermore, a number of national and internationally renowned centers of excellence are part of the hospital.

The hospital provides professional treatment in a warm and relaxed environment, instilling a feeling of security and confidence in the children. Our long-term patients call it their "second home" and enjoy coming to receive their treatment.

The staff works closely with non-profit organizations that help arrange festive events for the holidays, bar- and bat-mitzvah celebrations, fun trips for children and parents and even seminars for children and their families away from the hospital.
