As the Jewish New Year approaches, we are thankful for all the good fortune in our lives, and are appreciate all of the wonderful opportunities we enjoy. We are indeed privileged to have ample occasions to participate in “tikun olam” – helping to build a just, peaceful and responsible society, and how better to express this than by supporting Soroka Medical Center. Soroka as an institution is devoted to improving healthcare outcomes for the under-served, providing cutting-edge medical care to the 1-million residents of the lower half of Israel, and dedicating enormous resources to advancing new research to improve treatments, detection, prevention of disease and to benefit humanity world-wide.
The friends of Soroka who participated in our June mission to Israel were witness to the amazing developments of the Soroka Medical Center Campus. Just as the city of Be’er Sheva is rapidly transforming into a buzzing high-tech hub, and as the development towns that surround it are burgeoning into coveted bedroom communities, Soroka is fulfilling its promise to Israel to keep their citizens secure in their healthcare. Preeminent amongst these developments is the new Comprehensive Cancer Center. I am personally fortunate to have witnessed the advancement of this project, together with Soroka’s dedicated and laser-focused leadership team, from the time of the building’s groundbreaking to the creation of one of the very best cancer centers in the world. Soroka has hired the most talented and visionary leader for this center, Prof. Itzhak Avital, and we are eagerly awaiting the opening in 2018. There are ample important opportunities for you to participate in this project. Please contact us to learn more.
It is with great pride that we share with you a wonderful achievement: Soroka has received recognition from the Ministry of Health for its performance on 13 key patient-care metrics. This was realized through the unwavering dedication of each and every Soroka staff members. Please enjoy reading about this important development, as well as other medical advances from Soroka, within this letter.
It is my pleasure to wish you a happy and healthy New Year. We give thanks to all of our dear supporters and friends, and look forward to a wonderful year ahead, of meaningful accomplishments, enjoyed in peace and good health.
With our warmest wishes for a Happy, Healthy & Sweet New Year!
