Shaare Zedek is celebrating its 120th anniversary this year. Tour participants will have a rare opportunity to see sections of the hospital normally not accessible to the public and become acquainted with the complex logistical systems in place at the medical center: the heating/cooling facility that regulates the hospital’s air conditioning and water systems, the central sterile supply department where sterilized instruments are processed for the 30,000 surgical procedures performed annually, the pharmacy storerooms and robot, the automated lab test system, the computerized control room that distributes electricity to all the units in the hospital, and the emergency preparedness system for dealing with unconventional terrorist attacks.
The 90-minute tours will also include a first and exclusive look at the construction underway for the new radiotherapy and cancer center that is scheduled to open next year.
The tours will be led by Gadi Ilan, the director of the Logistics and Engineering Division, and a representative from the Public Affairs Department. They will begin with a presentation about the glorious past of the hospital and plans for its continued development in the future.
Paid parking is available at the entrance to Shaare Zedek.
Free parking is available in a lot near to the hospital, close to the Beitar Lot entrance.
- Participation in the tours is contingent on presenting a Green Pass.
