As hundreds of white and blue balloons were released into the sky, the first cancer patients walked through the doors of the Davidoff Center on that beautiful Sunday of May 8, 2005.
Situated on the Rabin Medical Center Campus, the Davidoff Center was completed and opened for service thanks to the generosity of the Davidoff family of Mexico City. It is the first and largest comprehensive center for the treatment and research of cancer in Israel and the Middle East. Rabin Medical Center treats one-fifth of Israel's cancer patients and is a leading partner in the worldwide effort to overcome diseases associated with cancer. The Davidoff Center will continue to assure that Rabin Medical Center is a leading international cancer center.
Dr. Dan Oppenheim, CEO of Rabin Medical Center, stressed that the Davidoff Center is revolutionary not only because of its emphasis on research and treatment but also because it was built and managed with an eye toward maximum privacy, comfort, and respect for patients and their visitors.
Recent studies have found distinct differences between the handwriting of patients with Parkinson's disease and that of healthy people.
A generous donation by the Eli and Dalia Horowitz Family Fund to Rabin Medical Center will support a three component program in Infectious Diseases. This system is vital response to a report of Israel‘s state comptroller warning that 4,000-6,000 people die in Israel each year from severe infections.
