U.S. Senior Law Enforcement Officials Witness Hadassah’s Trauma Facility
Senior law enforcement officials from the United States visited the Hadassah University Medical Center's Judy and Sidney Swartz Center for Emergency Medicine to learn about Hadassah's Shock Trauma Unit and emergency preparedness initiatives.
Prof. Avi Rivkind, head of the Unit and Hadassah's Department of General Surgery, briefed the delegation about the innovative protocols Hadassah employs to treat victims of terror attacks and mass casualty events. For example, he explained that Hadassah supplies ambulances with digital cameras so that surgeons will have a better understanding of the accident site and the resulting injuries the patients sustained. Sponsored by the Israel Office of the Anti-Defamation League, the mission was coordinated by Hadassah's Influentials to Israel Program.

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,
Hadasit still signed 125 agreements for clinical trials, all to be done at
Hadassah. In addition, Hadasit signed 15 agreements for cooperation and
commercialization of technologies that were developed at Hadassah. Click here
