Shaare Zedek has launched a bold campaign to double the size of its ER as demand for Emergency Room services rapidly increases. The Hospital will more than double the square footage of its emergency department with the addition of an all-new urgent-care pavilion. Today, the Weinstock Department of Emergency Medicine on the Fanya Gottesfeld Heller Floor includes 43 beds in approximately 16,000 square feet. The new Pavilion will add an additional 61 beds and 18,000 square feet. When this sophisticated, state-of-the-art facility first opened its doors it was treating 41,000 patients a year. Just fifteen years later the Hospital now sees more than 92,000 patients a year in our ER.
As the most centrally located hospital in Jerusalem, Shaare Zedek plays the most pivotal role in responding to major disasters and terrorist attacks. Spurred on by our reputation as the “Hospital with a Heart” and the surge in Jerusalem’s population, our Urgent Care Response System has significantly increased its activities resulting in Shaare Zedek’s status as the largest and fastest-growing comprehensive emergency service in the greater Jerusalem area. When it comes to trauma and emergency care, every minute — indeed often every second — matters.
