Delegation of Top Hospital Administrators is Wowed by Hadassah Medical Center’s new Inpatient Facility

"It's leading edge. Just the thinking behind it! Healing gardens, patient rooms, square feet, two beds per room, one bed per room, one window per patient…I mean these are huge developments," Joseph Mapa, Chief Executive Officer of Toronto's Mt. Sinai Hospital, said of the Hadassah University Medical Center's new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower, during a visit to Hadassah as part of the first-ever delegation to Israel of close to 50 CEOs from top hospitals in North America.

"The American system has many great things, but also many things to learn from this country and I think that the level of medicine here and the level of training is every bit as good as medicine that I see now in the States," Kevin Tabb, the CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, told The Media Line, an online source for Mideast information. "It's amazing to see the relatively small budgets for an Israeli hospital, doing tremendous amount things, on what would be considered a pittance in the U.S. and that's fascinating," said Dr. Tabb.

"This has been a tremendous exchange of North American healthcare leaders with Israeli healthcare leaders," Amir Dan Rubin, president and CEO of Stanford University Medical Center, commented.
