Israel Ganz, Governor of Binyamin Regional Council, Seeks Donors for New Hospital

(Courtesy of One Israel Fund) The governor of the Binyamin Regional Council in Israel, Israel Ganz, is touring cities on the East Coast of the United States until February 10, to seek donors for the state-of-the-art, 7,000-square-meter Binyamin Medical Center that is presently being constructed in his jurisdiction. He will also be meeting with elected officials on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, to update them on issues related to the communities of Judea and Samaria.

The Binyamin Medical Center will radically transform the lives of both Jews and non-Jews living in the northern suburbs of Jerusalem, an area that he governs, and is a project developed through a partnership between the Binyamin Regional Council and One Israel Fund.

For years, residents of Judea and Samaria have had to travel over treacherous roads to get to hospitals in major city centers. This facility, while making the lives of so many in that area easier, will also take the burden off other hospitals, particularly in Jerusalem. Soon, whether someone has a heart attack, is in a car accident or is a victim of a terrorist incident, they will have access to top medical care in minutes instead of over an hour.

In addition to traditional services for fields such as cardiology, orthopedics, urology and women’s health, the facility will also offer allied health services such as rehabilitation and occupational therapy, ophthalmology, audiology and podiatry. There will also be a pharmacy on the premises as well as all emergency services and internal medicine.

Moreover, the facility will be a great asset economically to the area, not only bringing jobs to health professionals, but also creating those essential jobs needed to help a medical facility run at an optimum level, such as office staff, orderlies and custodial staff. It will also have a profound benefit to many other businesses in and around the medical center.

In the United States, people usually do not have to travel upwards of 50 miles for consultation with a dietician or holistic therapist, and now residents of the Binyamin region will have those same services close to where they live.
