Hemato-Oncology Outpatient Clinic - Mother and Child (Em Vayeled) Pavilion, 5th floor
In the Pediatric Outpatient Clinic in Ein Kerem we perform medical tests and provide treatment during the day, and in the afternoon the children return to their homes. There is a vast variety of diseases which can be treated in the outpatient clinic. Each child is treated by the specialized doctors compatible with his disease, and the various doctors collaborate when working on a complicated case. The treatment in the outpatient clinic varies from a few hours to a whole day.
The unit located on the ground floor has 9 beds, although it might expend in the future. Today, the unit treats about twenty children every day.

Enzyme Therapy for children with genetic diseases (Hunter Syndrome, Fabry Disease, Pompe Disease)
