Barkat: Hospital Merger Good for City Residents


Mayor Nir Barkat of Jerusalem welcomed, Sunday evening, news of the merger of Bikur Holim Hospital with the Sha'arei Tzedek Medical Center.

He said, "It should be clear to all that the alternative to the merger would be collapse and the firing of all the employees of Bikur Holim. The agreement, under which most of the Bikur Holim workers will be integrated into the framework of Sha'arei Tzedek Medical Center will benefit the residents of the city and bring stability in the medical services."
