The Shamir Medical Center (Assaf Harofeh)

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.


PSTD Treatment Utilizing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Shamir Medical Center, home to the largest and most sophisticated hyperbaric treatment center worldwide, is a global leader in the research and treatment of PTSD. Their groundbreaking method combines hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) with the expertise of a multidisciplinary team dedicated to treating severe PTSD.

This innovative treatment protocol was developed for severe, treatment-resistant PTSD to significantly improve symptoms, enhance performance, and facilitate a swift return to normal life.

Due to the current crisis in Israel, there is an urgent need to leverage this clinical expertise and utilize the unique and effective tool for civilians contending with severe trauma. Supporting the expansion of the PTSD unit will enable Shamir to provide comprehensive, professional, ongoing treatment tailored to the unique needs of each patient.

Supporting therapy will help heal individuals, children, and adults who have endured unimaginable pain. Your support can help them regain hope and rebuild their lives.
