A Friday Story: Hadassah is my Home
Every year, talented Hadassah doctors are presented with exciting and challenging possibilities of pursuing their education and research abroad.
We at Hadassah have always understood that illness and disease cross borders without regard for international demarcations – and that man-made and natural disasters unfortunately leave people in need of rapid medical expertise. We mean it when we say that “medicine knows no borders” and are quick to offer our help to people and countries near and far.
We all know how the days of our lives seem to flow seamlessly from past to present and on into the future. This week, when National President Marcie Natan visited us for the first time as Hadassah’s highest elected official, I remembered the many times we had welcomed her in the past, when we sat together, discussed the latest developments at the Medical Center and spoke about what lay ahead.
With a lively “Get Well Soon” song, the doctors, nurses, and a slew of other staff members at the Hadassah University Medical Center, send a wish for healing and health.
