At Ein Kerem, the Hematology Day Care Unit handles 2,500 admissions (visits) a year. It operates 5 days a week, Sunday through Thursday, from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm. It is staffed by 2 physician. The senior clinican, Dr. Ada Goldfarb, has 2 decades of experience treating Hematology-Oncology patients.
The Day Care Unit has the facilities to provide a wide range of treatment for hematology patients. This includes some of the more simple, yet vital tasks, such as checking a patient's blood count after receiving a round of chemotherapy to complex functions such as administering multidrug chemotherapeutic protocols, or extended infusions of agents such as monoclonal antibodies. As our Day Care Unit is operational for the entire work week, we can provide continuity of treatment and follow-up for patients in the period immediately following discharge from hospital.
