Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Hadassah hospitals in Israel serve 1 million patients of all backgrounds a year intended to provide the highest level of treatment and care. The medical center also enters into extensive medical research that has been noted as state of the art around the world. The hospitals aim to ensure that all people regardless of race, religion and national background are treated equally, having garnered them a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. In the US the organization aims to ensure the healthy lifestyles of women and men.

In Israel, the most qualified doctors, nurses, technicians and other staff are employed to provide top quality care. These professionals are nurtured to support the research and clinical work that they do. In the US, we provide workshops, programs, tips and other materials on health issues such as heart disease, breast cancer, diabetes, melanoma and infertility so that individuals can be aware of, and personally address these conditions.

With regard to the US, we have approximately 700 chapters of volunteers who organize educational sessions around health issues and others who organize to advocate to their state and federal officials regarding matters of health equity, Israel and US relations. The organization also has 120 staff in its central NY office and 80 throughout the country. In Israel we have the most qualified personnel, many from such hospitals as Sloan Kettering, the Mayo Clinic and other such US institutions as well as the top physicians and nurses in Israel. The organization raises funds annually to support the infrastructure and development of the American and Israeli entities.

We built a new state of the art facility on one of the campuses of our hospital center, we are currently renovating an older building to allow for 200 more beds to accommodate the growing population of Jerusalem, and we are upgrading the rehabilitation facilities on our older campus where we will be able to better serve veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces. In the US we are offering additional health programs, serving as the top not-for-profit advocacy group on Holocaust education, and drawing
Younger members into the organization so that we have a pipeline toward the future.
