CHW Fertility Unit
Groundbreaking research at Hadassah Hospital – in-vitro fertilization (IVF), egg donation, freezing cells for preservation in cancer patients, stem cell therapies and the treatment of infertile women over the age of 40 – have resulted in enhanced treatment for Hadassah patients and for women throughout the world.
Hadassah’s Fertility Unit is a leader in sophisticated procedures and scientific discoveries to give women new hope for bringing children into the world. This state-of-the-art division of Hadassah’s Gynaecology Department was inaugurated in 2012 as the Canadian Hadassah-WIZO Fertility Unit, and is housed in the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower. It is the first building of its kind to unite advanced medical technologies with a profound spirit of healing. The 14-story structure holds 500 beds, 20 operating rooms, and a 50-bed intensive care unit. Beyond the numbers, the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower provides a therapeutic and empowering environment for patients and their families, with beautiful healing gardens, and rooms designed to meet patient needs.
The CHW Fertility Unit is uniquely designed to empower women, placing them and their needs at the centre of its services. Specialists provide women with comprehensive care for IVF treatments in high-tech operating rooms and laboratories. The tower’s 19-story structure also provides a comfortable setting for in-patient care, with healing gardens, private and semi-private rooms for patients and pleasant facilities for family and staff.
