A Message From Rambam’s CEO

Dear Friend,

Israeli ingenuity is transforming the practice of medicine. How do we know? Because Rambam Health Care Campus is doing just that!  

Our pioneering work with cardiac stem cells is giving new hope to millions suffering from heart diseases. Genetic discoveries at Rambam are paving the way for personalized treatment approaches for Irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, and cancer.

As clinical partners with industry giants like General Electric, Rambam is the testing ground for the most advanced medical imaging and treatment technologies on the planet.  Rambam was the first in Israel and among the first in the world to provide incision-free brain surgery for effectively treating essential tremor.

You can’t help but feel proud of such innovation coming from Northern Israel.

Do you care deeply about the vitality and security of the people of Israel? Rambam plays an important role there as well.  

Our ambitious expansion plan, devised and executed with the support of our American friends, and our friends in Israel and around the world, has established a new paradigm for patient and staff safety and security. Rambam’s proximity to the volatile northern border led our supporters to help us build the 2,000-bed Sammy Ofer Fortified Underground Emergency Hospital. Not only is it the largest facility of its kind in the world—professionals worldwide are coming to Rambam to learn how we did it.

Believing as we do, that Jewish values elevate the sanctity of all human life, you will be moved and uplifted by the oasis of diversity and humanity that Rambam offers in a hostile Middle East.

The shared vision and support of the Canadian Friends of Rambam is helping Rambam prove that Israel truly is a “light unto the nations.”

I personally invite you to join our family of friends, who trust us to honor their values, and faithfully carry out their philanthropic vision. We offer opportunities for everyone to get involved. In whatever way you choose to support us, we warmly welcome you into the Rambam family.


Michael Halberthal, MD, MHA
