More About Hadassah Ein Kerem
Hadassah Ein Kerem was opened in 1961. David Ben Gurion, who was the Israeli Prime Minister at the time, chose the location and the hospital was built to accomodate the latest medical advances of the time. The other Hadassah campus on Mt. Scopus, was cut off from the Israeli side of Jerusalem since the Israeli War of Independence and couldn't be used. Ein Kerem was able to provide medical service for Jerusalem resients during this time.
Nowadays, Ein Kerem has more than 22 buildings and provides efficient medical services to anyone who needs. The buildings include the Mother and Child Building, the Main Building, the Emergency Room, the School of Dental Health, The School of Nursing and more. Our newest building is the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower, the most modern hospital building in Israel. The hospital complex also has a shopping center and a hotel.
