Mr. Kalmanovitz is a himself a survivor of a terror attack and expressed his impressions of the unit, “As someone who is no stranger to terror attacks and victims of terror, I am proud to see that Hadassah Hospital is prepared to treat anyone at anytime with the highest level of professional care.”

The Shock Trauma Unit is a state-of-the-art facility that operates 24-hours a day. It interacts with all other departments within Hadassah Hospital to treat an extremely high volume of patients; many with very serious injuries.

Boasting the lowest mortality rate in Israel, the Shock Trauma Unit is used as a model for other hospitals throughout the country and world.
