Visit From Israel’s Prime Minister

Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center hosted a visit of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who toured the hospital’s Corona treatment areas.

The visit included a tour of the hospital’s most recently opened Corona ward as well as the main operations center for the Keter A Unit.

The visit also provided Shaare Zedek’s Director General Professor Ofer Merin the chance to discuss the hospital’s expanding needs in light of the current healthcare crisis.

The visit was also attended by the Shaare Zedek President Professor Jonathan Halevy, Ministry of Health Director General Professor Chezi Levy, Corona “Project Manager”’ Professor Ronni Gamzu, Director of the National Security Agency Meir Ben Shabbat, Cabinet Secretary Tzachi Braverman and others.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said, “I was very impressed by the extent of activity here at Shaare Zedek and how you are handling the absorption of new patients and of course the work of your doctors and nurses. I am deeply thankful for your work in treating the Corona virus.”

Professor Merin said, “I want to thank the Prime Minister for this important visit. Shaare Zedek serves on the front of this battle against the Corona virus. For many months already our teams have been working with tremendous dedication on behalf of these patients and I deeply appreciate that the Prime Minister has come to encourage them. We are now in the midst of actively preparing for the winter months and we welcomed the chance to show the Prime Minister and our national healthcare leaders our needs and the challenges that lie ahead for us and the entire nation.”
