Hadassah's Hematology Department's leadership
in patient care, research, and education depends on thousands of
dedicated people - physicians, nurses, and other professionals who
care for patients, investigators who explore the causes of
hematological disease, and volunteers and benefactors who
contribute so that others can hope for more effective
Our work is made possible in large part by the philanthropic
support of our donors. Through charitable giving, friends of
the Center can become partners in the effort to reach our goal: the
progressive control and ultimate cure of all hematological
Volunteers work in
partnership with our staff, giving their time in support of our
mission. Speak to Professor Ben Yehuda or to our head nurse, Ronit
Halperin to arrange a schedule of activities or services.
It is important to note that we aim to give the highest quality
care, and our standards are considerably higher than those at most
other hospitals. The reimbursement rates by the Sick Funds
only take into account the ordinary standard of care.
Therefore our department routinely accrues deficits by providing
diagnostic tests and critical therapies whose costs are not covered
by the daily hospital fees.
Furthermore in order to remain at the forefront, we regularly
acquire the sophisticated equipment needed for achieving the
maximum in diagnostic accuracy for our patients. Such
expenditures must be covered by our benefactors as they go far
beyond the costs ordinarily covered by hospital fees.
We would be pleased to accept donations and contributions to our
department. We will forward contributions through the Donor
Recognition Department with all tax benefits credited
appropriately. At our request, we will honor your gift to remember
a loved one!
Alternatively, our department has opened a special memorial fund
in remembrance of our dear Dr. Shmuel Gillis z''l. This will
be used for educational activities in the department, in memory of
Shmuel's high esteem for learning.
For those who wish to convey their special form of recognition
to the nursing staff, there is a special fund for nurses' welfare
which is utilized for nursing education, conferences, book,
All checks should be made payable to Hadassah Medical
Organization, together with a cover letter to the Head of the
Department with referral to donation.
