In the face of possible war, Rambam Health Care Campus has built the world’s largest fortified underground emergency hospital in the world

Help us equip it with 2,000 medical beds!

July 2006. Border clashes with the Hezbollah in Lebanon escalate into a 34-day war. For the first time, Israeli hospitals find themselves under direct rocket and missile fire. The lives of patients and devoted medical staff are at risk.

Spring 2013. A vigilant Israel guards its volatile northern border.

Reality has forced Rambam-Northern Israel’s tertiary referral hospital, which serves over two million civilians, soldiers and peacekeepers-to build the Sammy Ofer Fortified Underground Emergency Hospital, the largest of its kind in the world. The hospital is designed to convert within 72 hours from a 1,500-vehicle parking lot into a 2,000-bed acute emergency hospital fortified against conventional and non-conventional warfare.

The new structure is not only underground but also below sea level. It can be 100% sealed off and self-sufficient, able to generate its own power supply and to store enough breathable oxygen, drinking water, and medical-gas supplies for up to 72 hours.

We’ve almost finished construction; now we need medical beds and lifesaving equipment.

Your support will help this facility become fully operational.
