360 Degrees of Healing
360 Degrees of Healing (hadassah home tile)

Hadassah Medical Organization, founded by Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc. has defined health care in Israel. It’s about compassion. It’s about healing. It’s about life.


But that’s not all.
It’s also about a 360-degree vision in a changing world.


Hadassah is the founder of Israel’s modern health-care system and has been tireless in maintaining the highest standards for more than 100 years. Since 1960, the population of Jerusalem has tripled, and the demands on the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) and Hadassah Hospital at the Ein Kerem campus have grown exponentially. Hadassah must respond—and we must look forward. So HMO begins, first by completely reimagining the iconic Round Building, the hospital’s original inpatient center at Ein Kerem. With this renovation and expansion, the new Round Building will be an important healing center for Israel. It will significantly advance the services in its outpatient surgery, maternity, oncology, and dermatology departments.

The Transformation of an Iconic Hadassah Building, as featured in Hadassah Magazine.

From our President

Barbara Katz

Dear Hadassah Sisters, Associates and Friends,

360 Degrees of Healing

The following is a true story.  I know.  I was there last May at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem.

11 Hadassah Region Presidents and one HMO psychiatrist walk into an elevator in the 1960s era Round Building.  15 seconds later they hear a loud bang and the elevator stops between floors.  The floor indicator over the door oscillates wildly.  It finally stops showing floor 18.  But there are only 8 floors in the round building.  Do they panic? No. But the doctor is clearly agitated.  He keeps saying “I have to get out of here; I have appointments.”

After 15 minutes in the stalled elevator they are rescued.  When the doors open they see Professor Yoram Weiss, the Medical Director of Hadassah Ein Kerem, standing there with a sheepish grin on his face.  “I promise” he says, “I didn’t do it on purpose.”

But seriously folks, that’s how I know first hand how badly the Round Building needs to be renovated.

The renovation of the Round Building is central to the continuation of providing state of the art medical care to the people of Jerusalem and to the Jerusalem Gateway Project, which is transforming the city into an entrepreneurial business center. Mayor Nir Barkat has stated that “this transformation has only just begun and sees the Hadassah Medical Organization as playing a vital role in taking Jerusalem to the next level – attracting new talent and revolutionizing modern health care”.

Hadassah has committed to try to raise $91,000,000 for the project which, along with a $27,000,000 contribution from the Israeli government, will fund:

·         the creation of 200 new beds

·         the renovation of 17 operating rooms

·         the construction of larger patient rooms to enhance patient privacy and reduce infection risk

·         the strengthening of building infrastructure to protect the hospital from earthquakes and conventional, biological or chemical attacks

·         the creation of a state-of-the-art Simulation Lab with numerous simulation teaching spaces to provide medical, nursing and IDF students with the opportunity for intensive hands-on clinical training

I hope that you will join me in contributing to the 360 Degrees of Healing Campaign and accept the opportunity to continue Hadassah’s gift to the people of Israel.

There are still volunteer opportunities, both large and small, on the Brooklyn Executive Board.  Please email me at bkatz@hadassh.org if you are interested in joining the Brooklyn Women Who Do.

I look forward to seeing you at our region and chapter events!

B'Shalom,
Barbara Katz
Hadassah Brooklyn President
