Shaare Zedek Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the largest and most advanced in Israel. The NICU complex includes 70 beds (of which at least 50 are full at any given time), and state-of-the-art respiratory and monitoring equipment allowing us to provide world-class health care for premature infants. Caring for our most vulnerable and tiniest patients, many of whom weigh less than a 1 lb. and cannot breathe on their own, is one of our highest priority needs.
The funds from this year’s College Bowl-A-Thon will dedicate two Open Incubators for the Shaare Zedek NICU.
These incubators keeps premature babies alive by regulating their body temperature and maintaining the proper levels, as well as protecting the infant’s fragile skin.
Thank you for joining us in helping to save the lives of so many babies in Israel! We are deeply grateful for your support and generosity.
