Terrequity Children’s Foundation (TCF) is pleased to announce its most recent contribution to The Canadian Shaare Zedek Hospital Foundatioin.
The Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem is known as the "Hospital with a Heart" for its century-long reputation for treating patients rather than just their illnesses, for an extra dimension of caring.
Serving the needs of the residents of Jerusalem and Israel, Shaare Zedek is the city's only major, centrally located hospital, committed to the provision of top-level medical care through a highly compassionate and personalized approach. Shaare Zedek has responded to the needs of Jerusalem’s uniquely diverse population from its very first day of operation, treating patients of every race, religion and nationality.
The 500-bed facility admits more than 50,000 in-patients a year in its thirty departments. More than 150,000 people are treated in the out-patient clinics, a comprehensive entity including more than 70 departments and units.
Shaare Zedek receives no financial support from the Israeli government for development. It relies on the generosity of friends around the world in order to fund and carry out research, upgrade vital equipment and continuously maintain and further expand its facilities.
The Terrequity Children’s Foundation support will go directly towards the purchase of medical equipment for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the medical centre in Jerusalem. TCF would like to thank Jordan Epstein for recommending that TCF support The Canadian Shaare Zedek Hospital Foundation.
