Hadassah Mount Scopus offers a wide range of specialised facilities for children. Many are unique in Israel and are recognized as “national centres of excellence”. The Mt. Scopus Paediatrics Dept. is the largest general Paediatrics Dept. in Greater Jerusalem, but has an outdated, small Emergency Dept. that today needs urgent expansion.
Hadassah, Mount Scopus last year treated over 16,000 children within this Accident & Emergency Dept. and visits are increasing every single year. This is in a building that is listed a “historic landmark”- but was built in 1939!
It is now necessary to expand, reinforce, renovate and re-configure for the expanding modern emergency needs. This will enable the hospital to continue to give the treatment and care well into the future for which Hadassah is famous.
Hadassah Mount Scopus Accident & Emergency Centre works around the clock, treating babies, children and teenagers. It is a principal centre for medical care and intensive care for seriously ill children.
The total new area of the planned Paediatric A & E is approximately 8,000 square feet. With the creation of the new dedicated Paediatric A&E, patients will benefit from age-appropriate, sophisticated, comprehensive emergency care in the swiftest manner possible, enabling speedy discharge or hospitalisation as required.
Increasing demand for this highly specialised, life changing treatments now available at this centre of excellence puts new strains on this Accident & Emergency Centre.
With your help and partnership Hadassah UK will be able to fund the essential medical equipment for the new centre and we can respond to Hadassah's young patients' critical needs.
Who will be treated in this unit? Everyone who needs it but we at Hadassah UK need to partner with our nurses and doctors to donate the modern equipment that they need.
The well-being of Hadassah Mount Scopus's young patients transcends all political and religious boundaries. Inside the unit you may see an ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman sitting with her unconscious 11-year-old daughter. Nearby, a Muslim woman from Hebron singing quietly to her young baby who has just undergone cardiac surgery. Next to her a father, a new immigrant from the former Soviet Union, holding his daughter whose liver tumour was recently removed.
