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."
