Hadassah Medical Organization has always defined health care in Israel, and now Hadassah has a 360-degree vision for a changing world.

It’s about compassion. It is about healing. It’s about life.

Hadassah is the founder of Israel’s modern health-care system, and has been tireless in maintaining the highest standards for more than 100 years. Since 1960, the population of Jerusalem has tripled, and the demands on the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) and Hadassah Hospital at the Ein Kerem campus have grown exponentially. Hadassah must respond—and we must look forward.

So HMO begins, first by completely reimagining the iconic Round Building, the hospital’s original inpatient center at Ein Kerem. With this renovation and expansion, the new Round Building will be an important healing center for Israel. It will significantly advance the services in its outpatient surgery, maternity, oncology, and dermatology departments.



New Opportunities for Jerusalem

The Jerusalem Gateway Project is transforming the city into an entrepreneurial business center. Already, in the past few years, Jerusalem has gone from unranked to 25th on the global list of high-tech cities, and people are flocking to this innovation hub.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat sees the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) as playing a vital role in taking Jerusalem to the next level—attracting new talent and revolutionizing modern health care.

It’s a remarkable opportunity for Hadassah. As the population of Jerusalem grows, the renovation and expansion of the Round Building on the Ein Kerem campus will ensure a higher level of patient care, increase the number of patients HMO serves each year, and contribute substantially to HMO’s growth.

“I don’t think there’s any bigger and better partner with Jerusalem than the Hadassah organization. The future of Hadassah…is the future of Jerusalem.”
– Mayor Nir Barkat


Hadassah’s Vision

The modernized Round building will allow HMO to serve far more patients far more comfortably and help us meet our own demanding standards for high-quality, compassionate care.

Priority 1

Round Building Infrastructure

  • 200 new beds will significantly increase the number of patients HMO will serve.
  • 17 renovated operating rooms with state-of-the-art equipment will improve efficiency and reduce waiting times for surgery.

  • Safe rooms on each floor will protect patients from conventional, biological, or chemical attacks.
Priority 2

Medicine and Care

  • Upgrades will allow HMO to expand treatment offerings and provide more comprehensive services.
  • Renovation will break down barriers between research and clinical services to accelerate the “bench to bedside” process.
  • Larger rooms will give patients more privacy and reduce the risk of infection.
  • Reconfigured and improved interior space on each floor will allow doctors and nurses to respond more quickly to patients.
Priority 3
