Dr. Roni Eichel Shares His Experience

Dr. Roni Eichel, head of the Neurology Department at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, faced a daunting challenge when his son, a soldier in the IDF’s elite combat unit, sustained severe injuries during operations in Gaza. Alongside countless others, Dr. Eichel experienced the gripping anxiety of fearing for his son’s life. However, the expertise and compassionate care provided by the medical professionals at Shaare Zedek played a pivotal role in saving his son.
In this critical juncture, Dr. Daniel Fink, head of the Cardiothoracic Department at Shaare Zedek, stepped in, playing an instrumental role in advancing the treatment of Dr. Eichel’s son. This exemplified the hospital’s unwavering dedication to delivering comprehensive healthcare.
Beyond navigating his personal ordeal, Dr. Eichel stands as a fervent advocate for Israel within the global medical community. Having immigrated to Israel from Germany 26 years ago, he leverages his experiences and expertise to galvanize support for Israel and condemn terrorist actions.
Dr. Eichel’s journey epitomizes the convergence of personal fortitude, professional commitment, and an enduring devotion to Israel’s well-being. This narrative is accentuated by the steadfast support and expertise of institutions like Shaare Zedek Medical Center, which remain steadfast in their mission of saving lives, delivering lives, and chaning lives.
