Needs in the Healthcare Sector: Treating Victims of Oct 7, Wounded Soldiers, Trauma, and More
Only 37 miles from the Gaza border – the Shamir Medical Center (Assaf Harofeh) has been treating hundreds of victims since the early hours of October 7.
It is the primary hospital for patients flown in directly from the battlefield and backup for the two frontline hospitals in Beer Sheva and Ashkelon.
With a new national center for treating PTSD, a secure underground emergency hospitalization space, expanded ER and surgical facilities, additional medical teams, and an information center for patients’ families, the team of nearly 4,000 employees at Shamir Medical Center has pivoted their operations to accommodate the vast need.
