Help us equip it with 2,000 medical beds!
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.
