Doctors, Govt. Make Significant Progress on Hadassah Deal


Doctors, the state, and Hadassah Hospital management have come to an understanding on a potential final deal to end an ongoing labor dispute.

According to the plan, the state will concede on a point that doctors had demanded be removed from the previous agreement; the state had demanded that any salary cuts for doctors, which will be treated as a “loan” to the hospital by doctors, would only be repaid in ten years, while doctors had demanded that the repayment could be made at any time before if the hospital's financial situation warranted it.
