From our President

Tracey Drayer

When Henrietta Szold and her mother first visited Jerusalem in 1909 they witnessed the starvation and disease that afflicted the people of the region. It was a decisive moment in Henrietta’s life and upon her return to the U.S. she soon founded Hadassah. Hadassah’s first mission was to send two nurses to Palestine. The clinic theses two nurses established saw 5000 patients in the first year.
Today, Hadassah Medical Organization is one of the pre-eminent medical facilities in the Middle East delivering advanced patient care and breakthrough medical research that benefits the world. The Palestinian Authority's Minister of Health, Dr. Hani Abdeen, visited patients at Hadassah Hospital on an official visit this spring and emphasized the importance of cooperation with Hadassah in healing, teaching, and research. Traditional long standing medical views had shown once a heart attack damaged heart cells, the cells would not regenerate, but recent research conducted by Prof. Chaim Lotan, Head of Hadassah’s Heart Institute, and his colleagues, has proved otherwise. Using animal models they took muscular pouches of the atrium wall and successfully replicated heart stem cells in large quantities. The research team is now exploring the possibility of using this approach as a “biological band-aid” to cover a scarred area of the heart. Replacing or regenerating faulty cells is the promise of a future free of pain and suffering. The future is now and it is at Hadassah.
