Remembering Jerome

A longtime friend of Rabin Medical Center and one of the first members of American Friends Tsiky Rosenthal recently visited the hospital and donated a hospital bed in memory of her late husband, Dr. Jerome Rosenthal who died after a long courageous battle with cancer. The bed was donated to the ENT Department at Rabin Medical Center as Jerome was an Otolaryngologist, who specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of ear, nose, throat, and head and neck disorders.

As a young woman, Tsiky ventured to America where she worked as an Israeli guide at the UN. During her time in New York, Tsiky met Jerome and they fell in love. They made their home together in Long Island and had three children (Danna, Tamara and Elan) and spent many happy years together. Their two daughters are married with children and one grandchild is expected at the end of March 2010. Their son Elan followed his father's footsteps into medicine as an interventional radiologist.

During her recent trip to Israel she visited the hospital with her sister and her two nephews who live in Israel and saw the bed she donated in remembrance of her husband. She also toured the hospital, including the unique synagogue, the Davidoff Cancer Center and other medical departments. It was her first visit to the hospital in many years and she was amazed at the changes and advances that had been made and was tremendously impressed by the beauty of the campus and the superior level of medical services.
