A Door to the Future

Ron Krumer

The main entrance to Hadassah Hebrew University Medical Center in Ein Kerem has moved! Pedestrians coming from the commercial center across the street will now enter the Hospital via the beautiful Promenade in the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower. The temporary bridge that connected the commercial center to the Hospital will be dismantled to make space for the elevator that will take patients from the Center for Emergency Medicine to the new Operating Rooms on the 4th floor.

Next year, a new, permanent main entrance will provide easy access to all the buildings and centers in the Hospital.

The Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower is the largest building project in Jerusalem. In 2007, Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America (HWZOA), launched the biggest capital campaign in its history to build the Tower. The Tower will be HWZOA's gift to the people of Israel on the occasion of its Centennial in 2012, and will be dedicated at its October 2012 Convention in Jerusalem. We're Not Waiting For The Future. We're Building It.
