Laniado Hospital Israel Announces New, Sheltered Emergency Hospital

Since its humble beginning in 1975, Laniado Hospital of Netanya, Israel has developed into a modern and extensive medical center in Israel serving a region of over 500,000 residents.

Over the past four years alone, Laniado has opened a state-of-the-art ICU, NICU, emergency ob-gyn center, delivery rooms and dialysis center, among other significant capital improvements. Where possible, each project is sheltered, meaning it is protected against missile and biological attacks and earthquakes. If such a scenario were to happen, instead of mass evacuation, bombproof doors are closed and everything in the department can continue without interruption.

Most recently, Laniado has undertaken to build a sheltered Emergency Hospital and Trauma Center. Although plans were underway earlier, October 7 confirmed the need for a sheltered facility.

The new hospital will boast four floors, over 53,000 sq. ft., quadrupling the size of the existing ER and providing peace of mind to patients and staff. With 60 beds/patient stations, a robust Trauma Center and complete Imaging Center, the new sheltered Emergency Hospital will take emergency medicine to a new level.

This is very welcome news, especially for new olim who are moving to Netanya’s Poleg and Ir Yamim neighborhoods.

Tammy and Daniel from Manhattan recently purchased an apartment in Netanya. “As we look towards retirement, we thought, ‘Why buy in Florida, our future is in Israel!’ We love the centrality of Netanya. Knowing our new city has a hospital that is developing and creating the infrastructure needed to care for its population was a big factor.” shared Tammy.

In addition to serving civilians, Laniado is a back hospital for the IDF’s northern command. As this article goes to print, numerous medivac drills are taking place.

Laniado’s founder, the late Klausenberger Rebbe, who lost his wife and 11 children during the Holocaust, dedicated his life to rebuilding and caring for Am Yisrael’s guf and neshama, body and soul. Laniado encompasses both.

Holding steadfast to its founding mission, Laniado does everything possible to save a life and alleviate the physical and emotional pain of a patient with kindness and compassion. The new Emergency Hospital is another step to ensure patients receive the best possible care in a safe and secure environment.
