When Israel wants to show the quality of its medicine, the Hadassah Hospital is chosen for the quality of its doctors, the advances in medical research, and the coexistence of a very heterogeneous population who live in conditions of peace.

Melania Trump, First Lady of the United States, accompanied by Sara Natanyahu, wife of Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, visited the Hadassah Hospital at Ein Kerem today. You can see the video of the visit below.

Welcomed by Ellen Hershkin, President of Hadassah; and Prof. Zeev Rotstein, Director General of the Hadassah Medical Center, Mrs. Trump was introduced to several Hadassah physicians and nurses, both Arab and Jewish.

Mrs. Trump and Mrs. Netanyahu then walked outside to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital children’s playground, where pediatric patients and nurses at Hadassah from diverse backgrounds were waiting to welcome them. On the way they past a bench in the playground that the Hadassah Hospital had dedicated to both First Ladies in honor of this special visit.

Mrs. Trump spoke to the children and presented them with gifts of games and books in a backpack with a special White House emblem. The children had made drawings for Mrs. Trump, and presented each first lady with a special album of drawings and photos they had made for them.

Mrs. Trump was particularly moved with the album she received, and thanked the children who had made it for her. The cover on the album said:

Dear Melania Trump, First Lady of the United States: The Hadassah Children want to dedicate this album to you.
