The Friends of Galilee Medical Center Association seeks to improve the level of healthcare available to residents of the Galilee by renovating and expanding GMC’s facilities, purchasing new equipment, and acquiring new technologies
Studies prove that there is a connection between a patient’s surroundings and the level of pain and anxiety following medical treatments and procedures. In order to boost the patients’ healing process and general wellbeing, the Friends Association embellishes the medical center’s public spaces with works of art, builds therapeutic gardens and safe playgrounds for children, and upgrades the waiting areas for the benefit of the patients, visitors and staff.
The Friends of GMC Association actively strengthens the ties between the medical center and the surrounding community. In particular, it encourages the local population to adopt a healthy lifestyle by organizing various initiatives, such as health fairs, workshops and lectures featuring GMC’s top medical experts. These events take place in communities around the Galilee in partnership with local councils and volunteer organizations from all sectors of society.
