The Shamir Medical Center (SMC) is the third largest government hospital in Israel providing modern, comprehensive care to the residents of Rishon le Zion, Lod, Ramle, and settlements along the “Old Road to Jerusalem.”
The hospital cares for an ever-growing population, estimated today at half a million. As well as the inhabitants of the area and soldiers in the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF), many patients seen at the Shamir Medical Center are new immigrants from Russia and Ethiopia.
The Institute of Pulmonary Functions and Diseases at Shamir Medical Center treats 4,600 respiratory, lung, and lung function disease patients each year. The Institute provides counseling – both for the inpatient and surgical wards, and also performs assessments of high-risk patients before surgery.
The Institute conducts advanced research in the field of lung physiology, sleep medicine, and clinical studies of pharmaceutical companies and non-invasive respiratory best practices among hospitalized patients.
SMC urgently needs to rebuild the Institute for three primary reasons:
The New Pulmonary Institute will offer patients and medical staff a more respectful and high standard facility that meets modern standards. The expansion will provide additional doctor’s rooms, hospitalization stations, and medical treatment rooms for patients. The building process for the Institute was recently completed and the brand new Institute of Pulmonary Functions and Diseases is now open!
