Choose Your Impact: Pediatrics

Creating a healthy future for all children

Our young patients are treated in the child-friendly Charlotte R. Bloomberg Mother & Child Center at HMO in Ein Kerem and at Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus.

Hadassah Medical Organization established the first pediatric hospice in Israel. The newly expanded Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Ein Kerem treats critically ill patients, newborn to age 16, who are recovering from operations for head traumas, congenital heart defects, strokes and brain tumors.

Three-year-old Asaf has already endured more pain than most of us. He has acute leukemia. His pediatric oncology team is preparing Asaf for bone marrow transplantation, using his own stem cells. The treatment has had remarkable success in similar pediatric cases. His doctors are optimistic that one day soon, Asaf and children like him will be cancer-free.
