A Touching Tribute: A First-Of-Its-Kind

A touching tribute: a first-of-its-kind holistic treatment room has just opened at the Helmsley Cancer Center at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem in memory of Yuri Stern, z’’l, a patient who died of cancer.

The Oncology Center teams, led by Prof. Nir Peled, Prof. Nathan Charni, Palliative Care Unit Manager, Dr. Ora Rosengarten, Director of the Unit for Gynecological Oncology, Nursing, and Social Work Teams, gathered for the special ceremony that took place to officially open the Yuri Stern, z’’l, Room for Holistic Treatment Services.

The Yuri Stern, z’’l, Room is overseen by volunteers working alongside specialists at Shaare Zedek. Complementary treatments will be given in the spacious and adapted room that is designed specifically for the holistic needs of each patient.

Prof. Nir Peled, director of the Helmsley Oncology Center said, “this year we have inaugurated a spacious and advanced Radiotherapy Center, and now continue to expand the response by providing complementary treatments right in the same complex. I welcome the opening of the treatment room, and the cooperation with the Yuri Stern, z’’l, Room throughout the years for our patients.”

Lena Stern, the founder of the center named after her husband Yuri Stern, z’’l, said at the opening event, “You, the center staff, doctors, nurses, and medical teams who take care of hundreds of patients professionally, and with dedication made it possible for this to happen and expanded the response for patients. We have been operating at Shaare Zedek since 2007, thanks to Prof. Jonathan Halevi and Prof. Nathan Cherni. I am happy to inaugurate the spacious and advanced treatment room that will allow a great response to help relieve pain during the length of the exhausting treatments for all patients.”

Since the recent grand opening of the new Helmsley Cancer Center at Shaare Zedek, the Center has seen many exciting additions, advancements, treatments, research, and technology. The Canadian Shaare Zedek Hospital Foundation looks forward to all that is to come, and to the many lives that will continue to be saved, delivered, and changed at the hospital.
