Israeli Health Minister Visits Shamir Medical Centre (Assaf Harofeh) Emergency Department

Following an evening of heavy rocket fire across southern and central Israel, Health Minister, Yuli Edelstein, visited Shamir Medical Centre (Assaf Harofeh) emergency teams.  The Director General of the Hospital, Dr. Osnat Levzion-Korach, guided the Minister through the state-of-the-art Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit that are currently treating an influx of patients injured during last night’s outbreak of violence and the state of emergency declared in the nearby city of Lod.

Shamir Medical Centre, located just south of Tel Aviv, is the fourth largest hospital in Israel and serves one of the largest most diverse catchment areas in the country.
