With furnishing and equipment in place at the Harvey and Gloria Kaylie Rehabilitation Medical Center, the first patients have been admitted to southern Israel’s first-ever rehabilitation hospital at ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran.
In the words of Major-Gen. (Res.) Doron Almog, chairman and founder of ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, “The opening of the first ward in the Harvey and Gloria Kaylie Medical Center is an emotionally-packed, historical moment. A dream come true. It is a day on which we renew our oath to provide people who are vulnerable, wounded or disabled with love and the best possible professional care the world has to offer. It is a day on which I can see my brother Eran and my son Eran standing before me, pleading for Tikkun Olam, to care for the elevated souls who cannot care for themselves, those whose purpose in life is to affect change in us. Today, as always, it is appropriate today to express our gratitude to those individuals who work so hard, our incredibly dedicated medical staff who work day and night with boundless love and professionalism under the guidance of Dr. Zaki Siev-Ner. I wish all of our patients a full and speedy recovery.”
Hailing from the Ber Sheva, the capital of the Negev, 84-year-old Leon Karo, is one of the first patients to be admitted to the new ward. “I would like to thank all of the wonderful staff at ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran who take part in such holy work. They know how to work and they know how to appreciate and compliment accomplishments. It is very hard work and takes a lot of dedication. This is an historic day for all of us.”
He has maintained us and sustained us and enabled us to reach this day. Amen.
