Fertility Treatments at Hadassah University Medical Center: a Privilege for All
In Israel, fertility treatments, including expensive in vitro
fertilization (IVF) procedures are available to all, with payment covered by
health insurance for up to four children.
"In 18 years as an obstetrician/gynecologist, it never occurred to me that I should treat anyone without the utmost respect regardless of ethnic background or sexual orientation," relates Hadassah University Medical Center's Dr. Sagit Arbel-Alon. Dr. Arbel-Alon runs two specialty clinics at Hadassah's Patricia and Russell Fleischman Women's Health Center. "We have many patients in their late 30's," she says, "who haven't met their 'Prince Charming' and who have decided to have a baby while they still can. We help them all."

solution to a medical problem which can lead to the development of a new
medicine or product, Hadasit, Hadassah’s technology transfer arm, explores its
feasibility and supports the promotion of those viable ideas with innovation
potential. Although 2012 has been “a year full of challenges for the life
science industry,” says Einat Zisman, Hadasit’s Chief Executive Officer,

Hadassah. In addition, Hadasit signed 15 agreements for cooperation and
commercialization of technologies that were developed at Hadassah. Click here
