Rabin Medical Center seeks new ways to improve and extend patients’ cardiac health by building a new Comprehensive Heart Center to open in 2017. This Comprehensive Heart Center will accommodate Rabin Medical Center’s cardiology related medical services, placing all cardiac facilities under one roof. The Center will be planned by a team of leading American and Israeli architects with a modern design emphasizing staff efficiency and patient comfort and dignity. American Friends of Rabin Medical Center seeks a major donor to fund this important Heart Center.
The Davidoff Cancer Center, opened in 2005, is the leading oncology center in Israel and the Middle East, treating 130,578 patients last year. Funded through the vision and generosity of the Davidoff Family and Davidoff Foundation, the hospital provides for renowned cancer experts from major hospitals abroad with funded fellowships. Due to the Center’s high demand since its establishment, a major expansion will take place with six new floors added to the Davidoff Center to facilitate the increased patient load. The Davidoff Center has become a place of healing for all Israelis and calls upon your support to facilitate this vital expansion.

I spent four weeks at the gastroenterology division of Mount Sinai hospital in NYC, and specifically at the IBD center (inflammatory bowel diseases). During that time I joined the doctors at their daily work, and specifically to Dr. Steven Itzkowitz, one of the senior doctors at the department.
I spent 3 weeks at both the Peripheral Neuropathy Clinical and Research Center at Weill Cornell Medical College with Prof. Latov and the Weill Cornell Medical Center.
