Flooded with Thank You Letters


The Shamir Medical Centre (Assaf Harofeh) has been flooded with Thank You letters from patients and families affected by COVID-19.

Galia, a patient who was recently treated for COVID-19, wrote this moving letter:

‘I arrived at Shamir Hospital (Assaf Harofeh) a week ago with a serious respiratory condition and after five hours of check-ups and tests, I was admitted into the Coronavirus Ward. I was immediately greeted by a nurse named Ibrahim, who was full of compassion and empathy. He took great care of me and helped me calm down.

The next day I met another amazing nurse, named Etty. I simply don’t have enough words to express my gratitude for her as well. She is a ray of light, a true professional and also so warm and humane. Thanks to her, I am alive today.

I was literally met by angels in the midst of such a difficult, isolating and scary place. A place where you struggle for each breath. I knew I had to keep fighting off the virus, because if I didn’t relax and breathe- I simply will cease to be. It was absolutely frightening.   

Beyond the physical pain, there are also the mental health challenges. I’m so lucky I received such a wonderful nurse. She was my lifeguard and kept encouraging me. She never gave up on me.

To the incredible team: Thank you for all you have done for me. You have saved my life and for that I’m hugely grateful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
