Radio Interview With Shaare Zedek’s Director General Prof. Ofer Merin

“When Shaare Zedek opened its doors 120 years ago, the hospital consisted of 20 beds. Within a couple years, we’ll have grown to some 1,500 beds and be home to dozens of biotech and hi-tech companies. Our vision is to make Shaare Zedek into a center of advanced technological development that combines the best of clinical medicine with innovative research and scientific accomplishment.”

Shaare Zedek’s Director General Prof. Ofer Merin presented this vision at today’s Israel Medical Conference 2022 in an interview session hosted by Israeli radio personality, Maya Hasson Kraus.

“Just several weeks ago we opened our new Helmsley Cancer Center, which is designed to place the patient experience at the very center and in the next few weeks we will be opening our newly expanded Department of Emergency Medicine. We know that Israel needs to already be planning to respond to the challenges that will define our national healthcare in twenty years from now. This is specifically what we at Shaare Zedek are involved with, with a strategic and ambitious plan to ensure that the people of the greater Jerusalem region will be afforded the medical response they need and deserve.”
