The delegation was greeted by Chilean-born Midwife Heny Vainroj, who, it turned out, had delivered a baby of one of the delegates when she had lived in Israel!  The delegates received a general briefing about Hadassah--from research and new clinical initiatives to Hadassah’s role as a bridge to peace, along with financial aspects such as budgeting. They also were told about Hadassah’s collaborations with medical institutions in Latin America and Hadassah International's important role in initiating and facilitating these collaborations. They met with Chilean-born Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Icekson and toured Hadassah’s delivery suites and Natural Birthing Center at Hadassah Hospital-Ein Kerem, and the Judy and Sidney Swartz Center for Emergency Medicine, where they viewed Hadassah’s state-of-the-art equipment.
