During a century in which medical knowledge has progressed more quickly than at any time in human history, cancer continues to claim one in four victims and is the second leading cause of death in Israel and worldwide.
Today in Israel, some 22,000 cancer patients are newly diagnosed each year. One in every seven seeks help at Rabin Medical Center, and more breast cancer patients use its facilities than any other hospital in Israel. They now come to Rabin Medical Center because this hospital, thanks to the generosity of the Davidoff family, has opened a new state-of-the art cancer center that is the first and only comprehensive cancer center in the Middle East.
The nine-story Davidoff Center, opened in May 2005, is unique. Combining its four oncology and hematology departments, the Center brings a multi-disciplinary approach to each case, employing the expertise of a clinical oncologist, hematologist, radiologist, pathologist, psychologist, social worker, and a nutrition consultant.
Rabin Medical Center takes pride not only in fighting the disease but also in offering palliative care for patients and their families. Emphasis is placed on maximum privacy and respect for the patient in a warm and aesthetically-pleasing environment. The rooms have large windows, bringing in natural light, with views of the sculpture garden outside.
The Center stresses prevention and early detection by establishing aggressive screening programs and using sophisticated diagnostic testing equipment. Rabin Medical Center also has the most powerful linear accelerators in Israel used for pinpoint radiation treatment, treating 200 patients-both adults and children-daily and a total of 110,000 radiotherapy fields delivered annually.
