Shaare Zedek Highlights 2014

2014 saw unprecedented growth at Shaare Zedek Medical Center. We welcomed new, first rate physicians and expanded the nursing staff, incorporated advanced medical equipment, opened new departments and clinics, continued our building momentum and received a permit to expand the Hospital even further.

This past year we successfully treated a record number of patients – a 10% increase from the previous year.  Our Obstetrics and Gynecology Wing continues to break records and on the last day of the year we delivered our 22,417th birth, an unparalleled number in Israel and throughout the western world (15,890 were born in our main campus and the remainder at the Shaare Zedek City Center Campus, formerly known as Bikur Cholim).

Jules Hosanski Sterile Supply Unit Opens with the Support of USAID/ASHA

With the support of USAID/ASHA and the estate of Jules Hosanski, a life-long resident of France, Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center has opened the Jules Hosanski Sterile Supply Unit.

Shaare Zedek was honored to host His Excellency Patrick Maisonnave, the Ambassador of France to Israel, to mark the occasion.

More than 17 million NIS was invested in the Jules Hosanski Sterile Supply Unit, which integrates robotic technology and advanced sterilization equipment to offer a high level of patient safety. Shaare Zedek sterilizes over one million pieces of equipment annually, including those used in over 26,000 surgical procedures. The department is the most advanced of its kind in Israel.

Ambassador Maisonnave said that he was humbled by the recognition that ordinary citizens could play such an important role in the lives of the people of Israel. He complimented Shaare Zedek saying, “We are truly grateful for what you do here each and every day and for this we thank you.”

Shaare Zedek Ready as Snowstorm Approaches Jerusalem

Shaare Zedek Medical Center is gearing up for the approaching snowstorm, expected to hit Jerusalem,  beginning Tuesday evening, January 6, 2015 and continuing on Wednesday, January 7.

The Hospital, which delivered 150 babies during the December 2013 blizzard and cared for a large number of people who suffered from storm-related injuries, in addition to conducting “business as usual,” is initiating procedures for the storm which may bring snow accumulations that can equal last year’s 20 inches.

Uri Schwarz, Shaare Zedek’s Director of Resource Development, said, “On Wednesday, 7 am, the nurses will start to work in 12 hour shifts instead of the usual eight and the Hospital will provide transportation for staff based on all main arteries being accessible for vans with snow chains.” In addition, maintenance teams will work to ensure that access routes within the Hospital campus are kept clear and will coordinate efforts with the police and rescue services to keep access routes to Shaare Zedek as clear as possible.

In December 2013, many staff members rode out the three-day storm at Shaare Zedek, working multiple shifts and taking breaks whenever they could.
