Mayor Christian Estrosi of Nice, France stopped at Hadassah Hospital-Ein Kerem during his seventh visit to Israel earlier this week and met with Acting Director General Dr. Yuval Weiss, who emphasized the importance of Hadassah's collaboration with Nice.

Dr. Weiss expressed his appreciation to the Mayor for his ongoing support in maintaining the relationship with Hadassah and highlighted Hadassah's work with debilitating neurological disorders, hematology, and cancer--topics of special interest to the mayor—as well as Hadassah's ongoing collaboration with the Palestinians.

Mayor Estrosi and his delegation started their tour at the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower, completed in October of 2012, and continued to the Shapell Atrium, Holocaust Memorial, and the newly dedicated Healing and Environmental Garden.

Dr. Weiss later led the group to the Trauma Unit, where the delegation discussed a plan to create a collaborative trauma program between Nice, Boston, and Hadassah Hospital.
