The In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Unit at Soroka Medical Center has made it possible for many young couples in Israel to realize their dream of having children and beginning a family. The Unit is among the most advanced in Israel, rating among the highest in Israeli Ministry of Health annual surveys and on par with the best medical centers in the western world.
The Negev Center for Eating Disorders will care for hospitalized and ambulatory children, youth, and young adults (as well as the occasional older adult who suffers from this disease). It will focus on assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of eating disorders, as well as education and prevention.
Soroka Medical Center is solely responsible for the care of the more than 400,000 children in the Negev, the entire southern half of Israel. The Pediatric Oncology Ambulatory Care Department at Soroka Medical Center does its utmost to fulfill this important role. The Department provides treatment to children who are oncology, hematology, and bone marrow transplant patients. In addition to treatment rooms, the department includes an on-site and distance-learning classroom and an activity club room for our young patients and their families.
Soroka’s Trauma Unit is one of the largest and busiest in Israel, always on call, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Soroka serves as the regional trauma center for victims of terror and for all Israel Defense Force bases in and near the Negev. This need is unfortunately constant and increasing in light of the ongoing security situation in areas bordering Gaza.
The Negev blooms, both physically and spiritually. Soroka’s Women’s Health Clinic facilitates and nurtures over 16,000 births every year, the most in all of Israel (that’s 45 births every day!). To translate those numbers into more concrete terms: Soroka is where the future of the State of Israel is born.
The “Soroka Brain Center” currently evolving at Soroka Medical Center inspires to break down walls among medical and research disciplines in order ultimately to provide optimal multidimensional care for patients suffering from brain disorders. Cutting edge brain research also requires breaking down walls, those between brain clinicians and brain scientists.
