There is nothing as joyous as the birth of a newborn; and bringing newborns into the world is something Shaare Zedek does better than any other hospital in Israel, with over 22,000 births in 2015. Walking through the hotel-like atmosphere of the beautifully designed Wilf Woman and Infant Center, it is no surprise that after conducting an in-depth survey rating 24 delivery rooms throughout Israel, the daily newspaper Maariv rated Shaare Zedek’s delivery room as number one. The only hospital to receive a perfect score, the department promotes a sense of family, comfort and care as the staff addresses the full range of women’s health care issues from infancy to old age.
The Center, which opened in 1999, spanning the entire 9th floor, focuses on everything from treatment of endocrine problems in young adolescents, to gynecological-oncological surgery; from consultations concerning the changes triggered by menopause to the prevention of injuries due to osteoporosis. Whether offering emotional or physical support and care, Shaare Zedek provides a safe nurturing haven for women during their most extraordinary times as well as during their most trying times. In early 2014, the 10th floor of the new Next Generation Building will open and welcome the newly expanded Huberfeld Birthing Center.
