Yedioth Ahronoth wrote about Naama, “[Naama] instills in her staff the vision of Nursing Management at Shaare Zedek, ‘To be professional and human and to stay close to the patient’…Pleasant and lovely, she agreeably and modestly helps with everything and constantly emphasizes that an excellent manager cannot succeed without an excellent staff.”

Naama has over 20 years of Emergency Room experience and manages a staff of 80 people. At 5:50 her morning starts with getting to know each patient in the emergency room and their specific needs. Naama shared, “As a nurse, I feel a sense of mission. Working in the Emergency Medicine Department is very fulfilling. I like the fast pace, the diversity of the patients and the staff. I like figuring out what is happening with each patient and providing each patient and their family with what they need.”
