Hadassah New Zealand has successfully completed its $75,000 fundraising campaign to name a nursing station in the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower as a memorial tribute to Past President Valda Knight.
This has been a summer filled with Hadassah International visitors at our Medical Center. The global groundswell of enthusiasm for witnessing the work of our physicians and nurses first hand is so exhilarating for me. Hadassah supporters who are on a family trip to Israel make a point of going to see our hospitals because they feel so connected to our medical institution, thanks to what they have learned about Hadassah in their own countries. They are eager to show their children and grandchildren the hospital they are passionate about—to pass on this legacy of love to the next generation.
