First Deputy Mayor of Paris Visits Hadassah's Hospital

Mme Anne Hidalgo, First Deputy Mayor of Paris, visited Hadassah Ein Kerem.

On December 4, 2013, Mme Anne Hidalgo, First Deputy Mayor of Paris, visited Hadassah Ein Kerem. She was accompanied by a large, prominent delegation that included Pierre Schapira, Head of International Relations, European Affairs and Francophonie; Remi Feraud, Mayor of the 10th Arrondissement; Pierre Aidenbaum, Mayor of the 3rd Arrondissement; Jean Marie Vernat, Chief of Staff; Karen Taieb and Patrick Klugman, Councilors of Paris. The delegation was accompanied by journalists from Paris Match and Le Monde and a photographer.

Prof. Yoram Weiss, Director of the Hadassah Ein Kerem, welcomed the delegation and summarized the philosophy and operations of the Hadassah Medical Center.

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.

Prof. Rein explains the "A Heart for Peace " Program Prof. Jean- Jacques Rein, Director of Pediatric Cardiology, presented the "A Heart for Peace" program, a French-Israeli collaborative project, whose objective is to provide life-saving specialized care and surgery for Palestinian infants and children with congenital heart defects. Mme Hidalgo, who last visited Hadassah in 2005, reaffirmed the support of the City of Paris for this program, and noted that it has already sponsored operations for two children this year. Two prestigious receptions have been held in support of the initiative, the last of which was on October 30, 2013 in the presence of Anne Hidalgo and Pierre Schapira. Specific assistance was also offered by Pierre Aidenbaum and Patrick Klugman.

Plans had been made for the delegation to visit the Intensive Care Unit, but due to an emergency which served as a grave reminder that they were in a hospital, this visit had to be cancelled. Instead, the delegation proceeded to the Department of Pediatric Cardiology, where they were able to meet the family of a child who was scheduled to receive heart surgery.

The tour concluded at the Abbell Synagogue with its world renowned Chagall Windows where the group learned about the fascinating symbolism of these works of art.
