Grateful Daughter Thanks Hadassah for Father’s Care

An 84-year-old man, in critical condition, was brought to the Hadassah Medical Center; his daughter later wrote to salute Hadassah for the quality of concern her father experienced in Internal Medicine B on Mount Scopus.

"Last month we brought our dear 84-year-old father to Hadassah-Mt. Scopus. His condition was critical and deteriorating. He was covered with bed sores, suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, and other disorders. At Hadassah, he received an overall professional treatment that included a leg amputation, dialysis, and a thorough treatment to each of his diseases. Everything was done with true care (unfortunately we did not have this feeling in other hospitals). His doctors--Dr. Amichai Gotgold and Dr. Karmon--the special nurses--Tzippi, Ruti, and Adia--and the rest of the team made it their mission to cure our father! Today we salute the Department of Medicine B on Mt. Scopus."

P.S. We are a very large family. Each one of us used to come by himself and ask questions. The team was nice to all of us, listening patiently to all of us.


Dr. Darawsha is the father of four children.
