Urgent Request for Assistance – You Can Help Now


Israel is at war and Rambam Health Care Campus is the designated care provider for all soldiers and civilians injured in wartime in the Northern region. We stand ready to support our security forces and treat patients whenever needed. The hospital’s underground parking lot – the Sammy Ofer Fortified Underground Emergency Hospital – is ready for use with 1,400 beds.

Israel’s history has seen war returning to this region time and time again. Rambam stands ready and seeks financial support to provide the necessary medical equipment for the Sammy Ofer Fortified Underground Emergency Hospital – ventilators, anesthesia machines, monitors, infusion pumps and more. In addition, all Underground Hospital systems must be checked and be ready for use ASAP.  We cannot do it without your help.

Designed based on lessons learned from the Second Lebanon War when 60 rockets fell within a half mile radius of Rambam, this three level 1,500-vehicle underground parking lot converts to a 2,000-bed hospital within 72 hours. The facility is not just serving Northern Israel in times of extreme emergency, such as war, or natural disasters, it also solves medical crises when mass isolation is called for.

When our medical center is under threat, patients in the above-ground hospital will be brought to the Fortified Underground Emergency Hospital through an underground tunnel system. The entire facility will be equipped with emergency care medical equipment to treat acute and trauma-related injuries.

Rambam is a 1,100 bed hospital, the major referral medical center for all of Northern Israel, serving more than 2.5 million residents and others referred from all over Israel. Our strategic location near Israel’s hostile northern borders has made Rambam a vital national security resource. We are home to the only Level 1 trauma center in the North, and we treat more trauma patients than any other hospital in the country, with outstanding results.
