The Davidoff Cancer Center is the leading oncology center in Israel and the Middle East. Last year 130,578 patients were treated at the Davidoff Cancer Center. It is currently the best and only facility of its kind in Israel and has materialized into what had seemed to be a distant dream: a state-of-the-art cancer facility offering world-class cancer care in the Middle East. When it opened it 2005, a previously unobtainable standard of medical care became available to the people of Israel.
This new building on the Rabin Medical Center campus is a uniquely advanced facility, established because of the vision and generosity of the Davidoff Family. Their overwhelming generosity will also ensure that the Center continues to be a leader in its field through the Davidoff Foundation, which funds fellowships at major hospitals abroad and hosts renowned cancer experts at the Center in order to bring the best minds and ideas to this facility. They also initiated the Davidoff Center’s International Board: a group of experts from leading institutions around the world that regularly meet in Israel to share their work. The Davidoff Cancer Center is directed by Dr. Naftaly Meydan MD, M.H.A., Prof. Aaron Sulkes is the Director of the Division of Oncology and Prof. Ofer Shpilberg is the Director of the Hematology Division.
The Davidoff Cancer Center includes 6 units and clinics that help provide excellent care: the Palliative Care Unit, the Psycho-oncology Service, the Integrative Medicine Unit, the Survivorship Clinic, the Meir Laiser Cancer Information Center, and the Beauty Salon.
The Davidoff Cancer Center also includes 7 impressive departments that provide treatment for various types of cancer: the David Barouk Chemotherapy Day Care Unit, the Yoran Center for Oncologic Pharmacology, the Radiotherapy Unit, the Department of Oncology, the Department of Hemato-Oncology, the Bone Marrow Transplantation Unit, and Oncology and Hemato-oncology Outpatient Clinics.
The Davidoff Foundation funds fellowships for its physicians at major hospitals abroad and hosts renowned cancer experts at the Center.
