In a recent exclusive interview with the Evangelical News Channel “Breaking Israel News”, the director of Hadassah Hospital at Ein Kerem, Dr. Yoram Weiss, spoke about what Hadassah is doing to prepare for the next round of COVID-19 infections that are expected after isolation and social distancing is lifted in Israel.
He laid out his plan to retrofit hundreds of hospital beds in the facility to accommodate the Covid-19 crisis’ sequel. The hospital is scrambling to acquire hundreds of ventilated ICU beds that they currently don’t have. Jerusalem is the highest risk city as it boasts the most elderly population in Israel.
It should be noted that Hadassah is considered to be a world leader in terms of preparation for the anticipated second wave. Other hospitals across the globe are both learning from and adapting Hadassah’s approach, making the Jerusalem hospital a light unto the nations.
“I will also make you a light of nations, That My salvation may reach the ends of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:6)
Dr. Weiss stated that Hadassah Hospitals would continue to play a leading role in the important task of healing the people of Jerusalem. However, the Hospital requires a major investment. That’s because they need to acquire the appropriate medical infrastructure to accommodate all of the additional beds, monitors, syringe pumps, and ventilators. This will help them better prepare for every doctor’s worst nightmare.
That’s why the Jerusalem hospital is seeking donations from anyone who would like to take part in ensuring that Jerusalem remains a healthy city.
“Even small amounts help our patients. We are here to save the lives of everyone” said Weiss. “Every life counts” he added.
“With the help of our friends all over the world, we’ll be able to help Jerusalem prosper. We should not give up the dream of Jerusalem” Weiss concluded.
