New Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower
Currently under construction at Hadassah Hospital- Ein Kerem in Jerusalem, the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower will contain 14 floors, 500 beds, 20 operating rooms, 48 intensive care beds, the ultra-modern Heart Institute, and all Hadassah inpatient wards except those in the Cancer Center and the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Mother and Child Center.
As Hadassah’s physical capabilities expand, so will our ability to enrich clinical care, intensify research, and share knowledge with the world community. Scheduled to open in 2012, the new Hospital Tower at Ein Kerem is more than a building of bricks and mortar. It is a celebration of Hadassah’s centennial, and a promise to serve humankind for the next hundred years.
