When the pandemic was at its worst in Israel, Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem was taking care of 150 COVID-19 patients in six Outbreak Units and two Intensive Care Units (ICUs). To date, more than 4,500 COVID-19 patients have been treated at Hadassah.
As the number of COVID-19 cases has decreased, Hadassah has been able to close half of those Outbreak Units and one ICU. Numbers as of March 23 reveal that there are 55 patients in the Outbreak Units, with 45 in serious or critical condition and 11 on ventilators.
“Hadassah has been leading the COVID-19 effort from day one,” reports Director General Zeev Rotstein. “We have been treating more patients than any other hospital in the country, including cases from the West Bank and Jordan, and introducing innovations that have had a tangible impact on the world’s collective fight for life.”
