Health Minister Visits Rambam Hospital

Health Minister Yael German (Yesh Atid) held a surprise visit to the emergency department at the Rambam Hospital in Haifa on Thursday night. During the visit, German donned a doctor’s uniform and joined the staff doctors and nurses.

"I joined a special journey of an encounter with pain, old age, incurable diseases and trauma," German wrote on her Facebook page after the visit, adding, "Mostly I saw firsthand the thorough work of the medical staff and the complexity of making decisions in situations of uncertainty. I left at 11:20 p.m., they will continue until the morning.”
