Levan Center for Humanistic Medicine
Shaare Zedek has always excelled at treating patients humanely and compassionately, but as a result of this Center, this treatment now infiltrates every aspect of care at the Hospital. Under the direction of Dr. Nathan Cherny as Chair of the Department, its mandate is to introduce a higher level of humanism and personal respect into all aspects of the hospital. The Center includes the use of cosmeticians for patients with chronic diseases and provides social work services for a multi-ethnic multi-cultural society and translators in patients’ native languages. The Schlesinger Institute is a world leader in research of ethics and medicine. Its services and facilities are also a part of the Center.
