Supporting Cancer Care with Dignity
Deeply impressed by the excellent professional care he received from Rambam oncologists, yet dismayed by the hospital’s worn-down facilities, Haifa industrialist Joseph Fishman left a legacy to benefit the cancer patients of Northern Israel.
The Joseph Fishman Oncology Center opened its doors in June 2016, and is already providing state-of-the-art, comfortable and compassionate care in Rambam’s new West Campus.
Within the new and spacious facility, traditional, complementary, and alternative medical treatments will eventually be available. Laboratories dedicated to oncological research will bring hope to our patients in the here and now. Other facilities will be dedicated to cancer prevention and detection outreach into the communities of the region.
With three floors remaining to be completed and equipped, patients still need to brave the weather and walk considerable distances from the new hospital to get their radiation treatments in the old facility. Many of them are elderly, and deserving of our compassion.
Their path to treatment can be made easier with your help!
Giving opportunities are available for entire floors, departments, and medical and imaging equipment, specialized treatment rooms (including a linear accelerator bunker), patient beds, and more.
