The past two months have been intense…

Over the past two months, the staff of Shaare Zedek worked tirelessly to build infrastructure and to form, train and manage teams to treat coronavirus patients. Shaare Zedek adjusted its operations among its different departments to accommodate for the needs of treating coronavirus patients as well as ensure the safety of all patients, staff and visitors. These efforts involved modifications by members in almost every department within our medical center and required constant planning and adjustments to meet the needs that arose as the situation evolved. It has been an incredibly intense time.

As the numbers of people infected with the coronavirus in Israel decreased, Shaare Zedek closed several departments which were dedicated to treating people infected with the coronavirus, increased the regular operations and recently moved the remaining areas for treating coronavirus patients to a new isolated area.

As the team finished moving the equipment from the control room for the coronavirus patients, the walls of the room covered with thank you notes and cards from the patients and the families that had been sent to the staff of Shaare Zedek stood out. It was a very moving moment. The quantity of the cards and the sentiments that had been expressed were overwhelming.

Over the past several months, Shaare Zedek Medical Center treated thousands of people infected with the coronavirus. We are proud to be at the forefront of the effort to treat coronavirus patients and we wish all of our patients much good health.
