ADI – Ability. Diversity. Inclusion.
ADI is Israel’s most comprehensive provider of residential care for individuals with severe disabilities, the leader of the national rehabilitation movement, and an international advocate for disability inclusion, equity and access. While empowering hundreds of Israel’s most vulnerable citizens – children, adolescents and adults – to advance well beyond their initial prognoses and live happy, dignified, and meaningful lives, ADI is also establishing fully inclusive communities and laying the groundwork for the provision of the highest-level rehabilitative care for all.
The ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran rehabilitative village in Israel’s south and the ADI Jerusalem residential center (formerly a part of the ALEH network) comprise a continuum of loving care from infancy and childhood through adulthood, ensuring that residents with multiple disabilities and complex medical issues receive the medical and rehabilitative care and educational, vocational and social opportunities they need to reach their fullest potentials. At the same time, ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, which offers a host of rehabilitative solutions for individuals from all backgrounds and levels of need, is undergoing radical growth to meet the country’s rehabilitative needs.
Slated for completion in 2021, the ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Neuro-Orthopedic Rehabilitative Hospital, the first rehabilitative hospital in the Negev region, will feature 108 rehabilitative hospital beds and Israel’s first translational research institute, increasing the number of Israel’s rehabilitative hospital beds dramatically, bringing quality care to the residents of the south, and creating more housing and jobs in the Negev.
Major-General (Res.) Doron Almog leads ADI as its Chairman, Avi Wortzman serves as CEO of ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, and Shlomit Grayevsky serves as CEO of ADI Jerusalem.
‘ADI’ (pronounced ah-dee) is the Hebrew word for a radiant and multifaceted jewel, a name that reflects our expansive vision and broad scope of activities, including disability care, rehabilitation, research, employment, education, community services and Tikkun Olam. It also speaks to the importance and great value of our mission to care for the most precious members of our society – those who cannot care for themselves.
