Hadassah's Tower Challenge

Help us complete our second patient room in the Tower!


Luisa E.

The Tower has 14 stories, 500 beds, 20 state of the art operating rooms and 50 intensive care beds. We built it for 21st century medicine, such as computer assisted surgery in orthopedics, tailored treatment with gene therapy, and stem cell therapies.

The Tower is designed to met the emotional and spiritual needs of our patients.

Help CHICAGO-NORTH SHORE furnish and equip the Tower.

What can happen in a patient room?

young bride

The victim of a terrorist’s car bomb that exploded in downtown Jerusalem in 2001, Adi, age 11, was near death.

But doctors in the trauma center at Hadassah Medical Organization refused to give up. They saved her life as well as her badly injured leg and helped her learn to walk again. At Hadassah’s Centennial Convention in Jerusalem in 2012, she walked gracefully across the stage wearing high-heeled shoes! Her Hadassah doctors danced at her wedding. And in 2014, she delivered a healthy baby boy at Hadassah-Hospital Ein Kerem.

It is patients like Adi who will benefit from the treatment and care given in the patient rooms of the Tower once they are fully equipped.

 Shahar and Natan have also shared their stories...

Dedicated in 2012, the soaring Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower was Hadassah’s gift to the people of Israel on the occasion of its centennial. When its Surgical Center is completed, it will house 20 ultra-modern, specialized surgical theaters protected from outside attacks of any kind. The 19-story inpatient facility has 500 beds and 60 Intensive Care Unit  beds;  the departments of cardiology, internal medicine, orthopedics, urology, and obstetrics and gynecology; intensive care and intermediate step down units; and five below-ground floors--where the Surgical Center is located--that are fortified against conventional, biological or chemical attacks. Healing gardens, an expansive resource room, innovative patient rooms equipped with fold-out beds for family members, and the most advanced monitoring and imaging systems in patient rooms help ease the hospital experience for those who are ill.
