At the Kaplan Medical Center, they renewed today (Sunday) with the opening of a new hospital building, the opening of which was accelerated and promoted in the shadow of the war and the threat of missiles.
In the past month, combined teams from the Kaplan Medical Center and the college mobilized to speed up the transition to the new hospital building and thus ensure the provision of medical services in protected spaces. The new building covers a total area of approximately 23,000 square meters, and has 173 inpatient beds, of which 40 are protected inpatient beds, including single inpatient rooms. It will house, among other things, three internal wards, three advanced catheterization rooms, cardiac intensive care, a cardiac rehabilitation unit and more.
According to Dr. Orli Weinstein, Deputy Head of the General Hospitals Division: “A new hospital building, which includes protected hospital beds alongside protected catheterization rooms and later a new dialysis unit, in the midst of the war, is good news for the health system and the residents of the Shefala region. Klalit is committed to promoting medical services and providing quality medical care. The combination of protected spaces with medical technologies, which are among the most advanced in the world, make it possible to maintain therapeutic continuity and strengthen the sense of security of our patients and employees.”
Prof. Trif Bader, director of the Kaplan Medical Center and the Herzfeld Geriatric Medical Center: “A new hospital building significantly increases the hospital’s ability to receive and provide professional medical services to patients in the cardiology department and internal departments. This is a building that includes infrastructure of the highest standard alongside advanced medical instruments and equipment and innovative technologies, which will allow us to provide quality and groundbreaking medicine. I am proud of the employees of the hospital, from all sectors, who understood the order of the hour, and mobilized in an extraordinary way to enable a quick, professional and safe transition for our patients, especially at this time.”
Prof. Kobi George, director of the cardiology system at Kaplan Medical Center: “Aside from a significant upgrade in hospitalization conditions, the move will allow us to significantly expand the cardiology system at Kaplan – which includes three of the most advanced catheterization rooms, but not only. The heart system at Kaplan will work according to an innovative concept that includes all services related to heart health, under one roof, including new functions of advanced cardiac imaging, which includes cardiac mapping and an advanced CT device.”
The move to the new hospital building this week included moving the catheterization unit, cardiac intensive care, intermediate cardiac hospitalization and three other internal departments. Kaplan’s dialysis unit, cardiac rehabilitation unit and eye clinics are also expected to move to the new hospital building.
