Turning Tears to Smiles
The Ruth Rappaport Children’s Hospital set a new standard as one of the most advanced, thoughtfully designed and friendly children’s hospitals in the country when it opened in June 2014. A colorful, architectural landmark on Rambam’s West Campus, the hospital encompasses seven inpatient departments and over 20 professional units, as well as a science museum, movie theater, classrooms and play areas. Spacious, bright and welcoming, every detail of the new hospital is designed for the comfort of its young patients and their families, and to promote the healing process.
An Enchanting World Awaits Every Young Patient
Healing through Laughter
For the emotional wellbeing of young patients facing frightening and painful situations, professional Medical Clowns, specially trained in nursing, medicine and child psychology, can make a world of difference. If laughter is the best medicine, then medical clowns are just what the doctor ordered!
Bring a smile to the face of a sick child with your gift….
We invite you to help put big smiles on our little patients. Each medical clown at Rambam Health Care Campus must be funded by the generosity of others who understand how important laughter is for healing. Rambam needs $15,000 per year for each medical clown.
Your gift will bring a smile to the faces of these children and the staff who help them. Relieving stress, promoting healing – what better gift is there to give?
