It was the kindness of the Hadassah healthcare workers that helped me through.
Liana Alvarez’s column “After a Bus Ran Over Me in Israel, How Hadassah Hospital Saved My Life,” for Thrive Global, recounts Liana’s near-tragic accident while on vacation in Israel and her miraculous recovery in the capable hands of Hadassah Hospital’s resourceful doctors and nurses. Born and raised in the Soviet Union, Liana immigrated to the U.S. at age 18. Today, Liana works as a National Import Specialist with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. She and her husband Angel have two children.
In her column, Liana reflects on the healing power of medicine at Hadassah Hospital, marvels at how her Hadassah medical team put her back together, piece by piece, and how the kindness of the Hadassah healthcare workers helped her through her ordeal.
This column is part of Hadassah’s ongoing series of articles in Thrive Global, the new media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.
