Barkat: We Can't Allow Hadassah's Collapse


"Hadassah Hospital is an integral part of Jerusalem and Israel, and it is forbidden for us to allow its collapse," said Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. 

"I have been working behind the scenes and am in contact with Hadassah's administration, the Doctor's and Employees unions, and officials of the Finance and Health Ministries in order to facilitate negotiations between both sides in order to save the hospital, and I will continue to assist as needed," Barkat added.

"Hadassah Hospital is one of the most cutting-edged hospitals in the country and the world, leading in clinical studies, and innovative in developing new medical procedures for both diagnosis and treatment of ailments. Hadassah is run in conjunction with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, as well as five other professional medical academic institutions, treating people from every religion and every sector in Jerusalem," the mayor stated..
