Hadassah Medical Organization’s Global Reach—One Patient at a Time

"The time I spend in the corridors of healing at the Hadassah Medical Center never fail to inspire me," relates Hadassah's National President Marcie Natan. Every week, Mrs. Natan receives inquiries from all over the world, asking if, perhaps, individuals suffering from various illnesses should seek help in Israel at Hadassah. Just recently, Hadassah's Air Ambulance Service, created by Pilot/Intensive Care Specialist Prof. David Linton, picked up a Romanian man who had been electrocuted on a sightseeing train while on vacation in Moldavia.

On a recent visit, Mrs. Natan says, she learned that Hadassah's air ambulance was picking up three other patients--from Switzerland, Spain, and Hungary. Individuals from England, Kiev, and American tourists who were visiting Egypt have also been brought to Israel recently for treatment, as was a government minister from one of Israel's neighboring Arab countries.

With 500 beds, 19 stories (five underground) and state-of-the-art technical equipment, the Tower is the most advanced medical facility in the Middle East.

Mrs. Natan brings out that in the book, Start-Up Nation, the authors link Israel's extraordinary high-tech success to the drive to consistently re-evaluate what is being done; to change protocols to do better next time. Ideas, they say, are shared among all employees, with little concern for hierarchy. Mrs. Natan says she witnesses this perspective in operation at Hadassah's hospitals all the time.
