Environment

The Friends Association has taken upon itself the task of improving the ambience inside the hospital by exhibiting works of art. In the last few years, several art exhibitions – some permanent and others temporary – have been installed in different parts of the medical center, much to the joy of patients, visitors and staff:   

Art

  • A nature photography exhibit by photographer Yarin Klein in the lobby of the main building
  • A permanent exhibition of Israeli art, in the Oncology Institute, curated by Smadar Shefi
  • “Island Within an Island” – photographs of the Jewish community in Cuba by the JDOCU Group, curated by Eli Attias
  • “Opening a Window to the Western Galilee” – a permanent exhibit of landscapes, on the walls of the Out-Patient Clinic
  • “Woman, Mother and Child” – a permanent exhibit in the OB/GYN Department curated by Yael Nitzan
